BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

SEC investigating Goldman Sachs over ESG funds: WSJ

Goldman Sachs

(Reuters) — The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is looking into Goldman Sachs Group Inc.’s asset management division over its funds that look to invest based on environmental, social and governance standards, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The investigation is focused on Goldman Sachs’ mutual funds division, the report said Friday, citing people familiar with the matter. The company manages at least four funds that have clean energy or ESG in their names.

Goldman Sachs did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.

The SEC earlier this year proposed a pair of rule changes aimed at stamping out unfounded claims by funds regarding their ESG credentials and enforcing more standardization of such disclosures.
