RBC BlueBay Asset Management CEO shares his thoughts with the City Hive campaign

Erich Gerth, CEO of RBC BlueBay Asset Management, expects opportunities for women in investment to increase.

ESG Clarity is delighted to support the City Hive campaign celebrating 50 years of women investing in the UK.

What or who inspired you to work in investing?

A former schoolmate of mine.

What do you think the future looks like for women in investing? What would you like to see?

Opportunities will continue to increase, especially as we move away from the “star” system to a team investment approach.

What is your attitude to investment risk?

Diversification and time are key considerations to determine risk level.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

The ability to see into the future in order to potentially avoid some of my mistakes.

Tell us your motto or if you don’t live by one, why not?

Trust first and treat others as I would want to be treated.
