Global sustainable investment has reached US$35.3 trillion, a growth of 15% in just two years and representing about 36% of all assets managed in major financial markets worldwide, according to a recent report. With environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration becoming a common investment strategy, there is an urgent need to enhance transparency and standardisation as more investors and asset managers ride the green and sustainability train and as regulators firm up disclosure requirements.
Capitalising on technology for data accuracy and performance tracking is essential to guide stakeholders in their decision-making and ensure stable long-term returns. Additionally, climate risk is one of the most significant factors affecting the performance and valuation of investment portfolios.
Indeed, ESG has become an integral part of investing. Asset owners and managers as well as policy-makers and regulators can no longer afford to be complacent about the demand for sustainability.
The Asset Events+, in association with BNP Paribas, is pleased to be hosting an exclusive webinar to discuss how ESG is redefining investing and how stakeholders are facing the challenges and acting on the opportunities of sustainable investing. The webinar will also seek insights from BNP Paribas’ most recent survey of asset owners and managers on the issue.
