While many ESG managers did outperform traditional benchmarks in the last few months, we must not forget that there is more to good performance than outperformance.

But for those advisors whose client portfolios are goal-based, sometimes mitigating risk is as important as seeking return. Now is the time to choose sustainability over indifference.
