Thematics are a great way of engaging clients with sustainable investing and finding solutions that match their values. But volatility, smaller universes and the potential for greenwashing when using the Sustainable Development Goals for investment present challenges.
The third panel at the Global ESG Summit Thematic investing for a sustainable future, moderated by ESG Clarity global deputy editor Natasha Turner, weighed up thematics, and discussed opportunities in areas such as food and water.
The panellists were:
- Janet Shum, sustainable investing specialist, APAC, Citi Private Bank
- Arjan de Boer, deputy chief executive, Hong Kong Branch, Indosuez Wealth Management
- Hadrien Gaudin-Hamama, ESG analyst, Mirova
