Private Banking and Responsible Investment Roundtable

14:00
Recent research shows that many wealthy individuals have an interest in sustainable & responsible investment that private banks are not servicing adequately.

In many private banks the knowledge, products and expertise exist, but only institutional clients are targeted.

In an increasingly competitive market place, where differentiation is key, it would seem to make sense for private banks to explore this area.

The United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) Asset Management Working Group (AMWG) has convened a high level group of experts to identify the barriers and drivers to sustainable and responsible investment in private banking.

This roundtable is designed to enable free discussion between pannelists and delegates. Discussions will be captured in a short publication on the barriers and drivers to responsible investment in private banking.
