Sustainable Finance

The integration of Environmental, Social and Governance factors (ESG) has become a mainstay within asset management. Other areas of finance are also well underway in taking on board ESG considerations. These trends, expedited by the EU Sustainable Finance Action Plan are forcing finance industry players to answer two fundamental questions:
A) Do we have the processes in place to adequately assess the risks & opportunities associated with ESG topics?
B) Do we want to take an active role in creating positive impact on ESG topics, and if so, how?
