BAIDURI CAPITAL RAISES AWARENESS ON ESG INVESTMENT AT INSTITUTES OF HIGHER EDUCATION
04 November 2022

Baiduri Capital recently arranged for two special lectures at Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) and Politeknik Brunei (PB) in conjunction with World Investor Week 2022.

Baiduri Capital, a member of Brunei Darussalam Capital Markets Association (BCMA), organised the sessions on ESG investing as part of its contributions to promote and enhance financial and investment literacy, and strengthen product knowledge.

According to Brian Wong, General Manager of Baiduri Capital, “ESG Investing refers to investing which prioritises environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations. It is clear that the financial performance of organisations is increasingly affected by ESG factors. Investing sustainably means putting your money to work on a number of ESG related considerations. Sustainable investment combines a goal of financial return with a positive contribution to the environment, society or business whether it be in appreciation of the environment, high social standards and responsible business conduct. It is only timely that students, especially at this tertiary level in Brunei, are given the opportunity to engage with market practitioners on this mega trend and understand the importance of the framework that fund managers utilise to make their investment decisions.”

The hour-long session was jointly conducted with Winnie Tan of Allianz Global Investors who travelled in from Singapore for the two separate sessions. In her presentation, she introduced Allianz Global Investors and briefly walked the participants through some of the sustainability milestones since 1999. She then proceeded to define what sustainable investments were and the importance of sustainable investing for companies and financial markets.

The talks were attended by over 60 UBD students and 50 PB students respectively from various undergraduate and postgraduate courses including Masters in Islamic Finance, and Diploma Level 5 in Business, Finance and Accounting.
