Sustainable investing is coming of age. The portion of assets managed using sustainable approaches has risen markedly to levels that have made sustainable investing an issue that can’t be ignored – either by banks or by regulators and investors. This means that in addition to changing market sentiment, banks are increasingly having to contend with regulatory pressure to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment strategies and processes.
In this webinar we've presented you the findings of the fourth edition of the Sustainable Investing Capabilities of Private Banks survey conducted by the Center for Sustainable Finance and Private Wealth (CSP) at the University of Zurich with the support of PwC Switzerland. The study examines the sustainable investing practices of 20 private banks to provide guidance to private banks and private investors in the rapidly evolving field of sustainable finance.
The webinar recording is a great opportunity for you to gain insights into current developments around sustainable investing in wealth management, where the market is moving, and the challenges ahead. With introductory talks from PwC Switzerland CEO Andreas Staubli and Investor Reporting and ESG Leader Christophe Bourgoin, it's been a lively and thought-provoking online event.
