Wealth & Asset Management 4.0: ESG and Regulatory Shifts

Our recent survey of wealth management executives found that 35% believe a greater focus on environmental, social, and governance will have the biggest impact on the wealth management industry over the next two years. This ESG impact is coming from two directions: Investors, particularly younger ones, who view ESG as critical to their investing strategy; and regulators, who are moving to shut down greenwashing and protect investor interests in a world of digital disruption. While these trends have been percolating over the last several years, the pandemic has brought them to a boil.
