Colonial Consulting’s Andrew Siwo Shares Insights on “Incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance Investments to Produce Return Objectives”


New York, NY, October 24, 2017 – Colonial Consulting, LLC, a leading investment advisor with a core focus on non-profits, is pleased to announce that Senior Research Analyst Andrew Siwo will be serving as a panelist at the 21st Annual NASP-New York Symposium. The symposium is organized by the National Association of Securities Professionals – New York Chapter and will be held November 17, 2017 at BNY Mellon in New York. This year’s theme is “Keeping Pace When Market Dynamics Shift.”

Mr. Siwo’s panel is entitled “Incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance Investments to Produce Return Objectives.” Investors are increasingly allocating capital for sustainable renewable and impact investments while, at the same time, corporations are including sustainability in their business strategies. With the shift in focus on sustainability, impact and renewables opportunities, the investment industry is the process of creating new metrics and best practices to incorporate ESG factors in their portfolios. Panelists from both the sponsor and investor side will share their approach on how to successfully navigate these waters and what their best practices are in accountability and investment strategies that can lead to long-term returns.

The primary objective of the NASP-New York Symposium is to engage attendees in productive dialogue with fiduciaries about what works in the context of their pension plans and also provide insights from investment consultants, asset and investment managers and brokers. Additional information regarding the conference can be found at the NASP-NY web site at
