ESG for a better world
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) information can help analysts, portfolio managers and individual companies align their interests to create a better portfolio and, ultimately, a better world.
Thanks to our partnership with EFFAS, the European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies, ABAF/BVFA, in collaboration with Febelfin Academy, offer you the possibility to subscribe for a European certified ESG programme (CESGA).
ESG Certification comes to Belgium
The EFFAS Certified ESG Analyst (CESGA) has been running in the main financial markets in Europe, Asia, and on the American continent, in the United States for some time. As a reference, we like to inform you that more than 800 individual people already have followed the CESGA course. EFFAS has more than 500 individual holders and we also organise corporate programs, such as with Deutsche Bank.
CESGA has now started its journey in Belgium, by offering the certification through this joint initiative between ABAF/BVFA and Febelfin Academy, to financial professionals who can now participate in the online course, the first step to obtaining the certification.
High standard online training
The CESGA programme aims to provide the necessary training for the efficient assessment, measurement and integration of ESG issues in investment analysis.
The certification is especially targeted at financial analysts and portfolio managers who want to integrate ESG data into their capital investment processes; but also, in general, to all investment professionals, increasingly committed to sustainability issues. Other specialists such as auditors, consultants and those responsible for corporate sustainability and investor relations will find this course interesting to develop a better understanding of the needs of capital markets in terms of ESG information.
All in all, it is an ideal programme for asset owners, asset managers, corporate consultants, financial planners, and family offices who want to embrace ESG integration holistically.
The online programme includes 2 Q&A sessions, supported by international CESGA experts. Exams can be taken online and are organised on 13 November 2020 (enrolment until 12 October).
The cost comes to 1350 EUR for the online programme + 250 EUR for the certification exam.
As soon as we have received the payment, you’ll receive a link to the CESGA e-learning platform.
