The Future of ESG
We understand and embrace the importance of ESG investments
and the blended value it creates. The increasing capital flows in the sector and the positive correlation between ESG conformity and returns on investment have been proved scientifically.
Moreover, we believe that the current demographic changes will include more and more millennials in the investor base of the future, resulting in a higher demand for ESG investments.
On the other hand, greenwashing practices and the measurement complexity of the impact generated by investments is posing a significant threat to the validity and dissemination of ESG-aligned investments.
However, due to the increasing sophistication of due diligence processes and the utilisation of upcoming technologies such as blockchain and the internet of things, we do not see any issue in the long run.
The demand for investments aligned with the triple bottom line in our client base is limited, due to their demographic profile and background.
As we believe that ESG investments are slowly turning from a nice-to-have to a need-to-have and organisations will need to reposition themselves strategically, we strive to inform our clients about the importance of this investment practice and offer suitable investment opportunities.
It is vital for us to explain to our clients that the utilisation of ESG investments does not mean renouncing yield – on the contrary, it supports securing a sustainable yield, potentially outperforming conventional market benchmarks.
been on every investors lips for a while as clients and managers have become increasingly concerned about the impact of their investments.
