Are alternatives a good investment?

While sustainable investing has seen rapidly increasing popularity over the last couple of years, there is an urgency to this shift as the data show. 

Net-zero commitments may no longer be enough, professional investors are facing calls for a more stringent approach to increase impact, and asset managers must counteract accusations of greenwashing. 

Private capital investors are in a unique position to impact financial and social value creation. Each functional component—legalfund servicesbankinginsuranceconsultingsales & marketingICTHRresearch—offers opportunities to positively impact and deliver outstanding value to stakeholders often also with FinTech solutions like e.g. proptech. Applying an ESG lens when sourcing investments and throughout due diligence can expose ESG-related risks and opportunities. Developing, implementing, and monitoring ESG strategy throughout the portfolio is key to sustainable value creation. Assessing a firm's ESG objectives, including what has been implemented so far and what the next steps should be, is a sensible starting place.
