The raging war in Ukraine and the Covid-19 pandemic have centred global attention on energy security and healthcare inequality. Governments face a formidable funding gap for decarbonisation, however, the responsibility falls on portfolio managers to allocate to renewable assets. Impact-conscious clients are raising their voices, and, for asset and wealth managers, the European Union’s newly introduced Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation heralds significant change.
As investor sophistication matures, private banks are increasingly prioritising the development of their product offering. Investing in Article 9 funds is gaining traction as clients seek to play their part in engendering a healthier and more sustainable society. Whilst uncertainty around financial returns undoubtedly remains, clean energy production and storage technology, and private infrastructure assets present long-term protection in the current inflationary environment.
Impact investing can seem a broad and nebulous concept, and sustainability-charged bankers face roadblocks along the way. How will emerging taxonomy guidance lend greater transparency and credibility to impact management? As the market shifts from fossil fuel dependence to renewable energy sources, will wealth managers innovate to navigate transition risks and monitor the real-time performance of portfolios? How best can private banks educate investors, and to what extent is it imperative that wealth managers’ values align with those of their clients?
Hosted by PWM in partnership with Nuveen, this 50-minute webinar will bring together leading private banking executives, wealth managers, and family offices responding to societal demand for impact investing. Chaired by Yuri Bender, Editor-in-Chief of PWM, our panel of experts will spotlight opportunities for allocating to clean infrastructure assets, whilst unpacking the challenges of fragmented regulation, greenwashing, and ill-defined terminology.
