Unpacking South Africa’s ESG Index with Asset TV

Ryan Basdeo, 1nvest Head of Index Portfolio Management recently participated in an Asset TV Indexation Masterclass alongside industry colleagues Kingsley Williams, Chief Investment Officer at Satrix, and Anelisa Balfour, Index Portfolio Manager at Old Mutual Investment Group.

Ryan and the panel engaged in an insightful discussion on South Africa’s ESG Index and how its criteria impact the local market. The conversation kicks off with an overview of the milestones that we’ve seen in the history of indexes on the JSE (history enthusiasts, especially, will enjoy this) and goes on to tackle whether or not the growth of indexation domestically should be viewed as positive or as a sign that a market bubble is forming. Watch this informative Masterclass.
