European institutions are often considered to be leaders in responsible investing. Castle Hall was pleased to attend Responsible Investor’s recent conference in London to find out how European asset allocators and asset managers currently view sustainability-focused investing.
Overall, our view was one of an industry in transition: ESG is moving beyond the virtue signalling of “a simple answer to a complex question”, with investors increasingly focused on greenwashing, and whether asset managers actually deliver impactful ESG value within their portfolios. And, in addition to ESG portfolio construction, investors seek to understand whether the manager themselves – the vendor of asset management services – is themselves focused on E, S or G best practice.
We thank the organizers and the sponsors for an insightful and successful event!
