ESG-related risks are becoming crucial along the whole asset management value chain. In a dynamic regulatory environment, the understanding and mitigation of greenwashing risks when promoting and advising investment products is essential. At the same time identifying and assessing material ESG risks in the actual investment decision making process requires a distinct set skills and expertise regarding sustainable investments.
We will dive into different ESG risks along the asset management value chain that need to be considered when interacting with clients, executing investments or providing services.
