The Big Picture from a Luxembourg as a Financial Centre perspective

Sustainable Finance represents a golden opportunity for the Asset Management sector to use its collective momentum and scale to make transformational impacts on climate, environment and society. However, it is so much more than simply being “compliant”. A philosophical and cultural change across both Investors and Asset Managers must occur and be aligned on the impact objectives. Hear from Andrew McDowell, in conversation with Michael Maldener on how to effect such organisational culture change, the importance of measuring the impact investor money has made and reporting that “story” to them, and the opportunity for Luxembourg to establish its “brand” as the ESG domicile of choice in a world largely aligned on principle but not on practice.
