In this note we take a closer look at the relationship between ESG (environmental, social and governance) performance momentum and accountability to stock price performance. Although investors tend to generally look at ESG performance from a longer-term time horizon, recent performance data suggests that ESG is starting to generate alpha even in a shorter-term timeframe.
