Katherine Pease, Cornerstone’s Head of Impact Strategy, commented on today’s news, “The current global crisis is shining a light on companies that look to the future, have a culture of learning and prepare for the unexpected. While no one knows what the coming years will bring, these forward-looking companies may prove to be more resilient than others that don’t embrace change, training and education. Impact investing, or investing using an ESG lens, may help identify these more resilient companies that can rebound from adversity faster and stronger than others.”
