European Certified ESG Analyst (CESGA®) - in collaboration with ABAF /BVFA

Ik schrijf mij in

Thanks to our collaboration with ABAF/BVFA (abaf-bvfa.be, member of EFFAS, effas.net), we are happy to offer you the possibility to enrol for a European Certified CESGA-programme.

Global social and environmental challenges, regulatory and reputational risks, market scandals and new market opportunities make environmental, social and governance information (ESG) a data source of growing importance.

In this context, the integration of ESG information in the investment process chain and in valuation is essential. So far, only a few approaches and even fewer solutions exist that support investment professionals in the integration of ESG. Although considered increasingly relevant for investment decisions, it is estimated that still less than 15% of investment professionals receive some kind of structured ESG training.

The CESGA® programme aims to overcome this challenge by providing the necessary training for the efficient valuation, measurement and integration of ESG issues into investment analysis.

After having completed the programme, students should be able to know and understand:
