A GROWING DEMAND FOR SUSTAINABLE INVESTMENTS
We have seen a growing appetite for sustainable investments from our clients who want to align investments with their values. (Source: BNP Paribas Global Entrepreneur Report 2018).
- 39% of Elite entrepreneurs now consider "positive impact" to be core to how they evaluate their business performance, versus 10% two years before, driven by women and millenials.
- 55% of entrepreneurs have already committed a proportion of their wealth to achieve socially-responsible outcomes
To answer this demand, we are developing new solutions to extend sustainable investments to our clients around the world.
