For the GFW team, the fact that ESG at a corporate level is a differentiator in today’s crowded financial marketplace, has always been clear. Consequently, since its creation in 2016, the team operates according to the following values: no car, no paper, a pleasant work environment, and a strong sense of community.
Today, it is established that ESG is not a trend anymore: it became a standard in terms of investments. Global inflows in sustainable funds reached €185 bn by Q1 2021* and figures suggest that it was capital well invested, as 40% of ESG and sustainable funds made top quartile returns in the first half of this year with the average ESG outperforming its traditional peer.
GFW creates an ESG section for all users.
After consulting asset managers, fund distributors and regulators, GFW has developed an ESG section where any user can evaluate the way counterparties include ESG in their business and corporate model.
From now on, companies can evaluate the ESG approach from a compliance perspective, an efficient way to fulfill the ESG process they have established.
“ESG risks can’t be effectively managed as an isolated function within a company, and because regulations authorities will more and more scrutinize ESG impact, ESG is core for all types and sizes of organizations. Our aim is to build a bridge between financial players and support corporate ESG approaches.” says Valerie Kaliski, Global Head of GFW.
