While the EU focus is on the threat to investors if asset managers fail to appreciate the risks, for example, of stranded assets in the energy industry, LuxFLAG’s Denise Voss insisted that it’s also about embracing broader trends in society, and particularly among the young people who make up the coming generations of investors and financial industry employees. ESG, she says, will be a make-or-break test for the industry to prove its relevance – and the stakes are high, with $71 billion in investment flows worldwide into sustainable finance products in the second quarter, significantly higher proportionately than flows to the non-sustainable sector.
