A new sustainability-oriented asset management collaboration, with asset manager Aegon, was presented by ABN AMRO’s Vincent Triesschijn in Wednesday’s PostTrade 360° Amsterdam conference.
If you want to understand a professional investor’s process of selecting sustainable investment targets, this is the session for you.
It used to be that investors said “show me the money”. But with regard to the reporting requirements, they are increasingly saying “show me the impact”.
While the session was prompted by the recently established collaboration between the two Dutch finance actors – Aegon Asset Management and the asset management side of bank ABN AMRO – the presentation shared a lot of background and description on how sustainable investment is actually performed.
Clearly, end investors are stepping up their demand for stock in companies that are making a positive change on the sustainability parameters (environmental, social and governance, ESG).
