BACKGROUND

In Europe, capital markets are expected to support long-term value creation in the real economy. Most importantly, to contribute to the resilience of our societies, in particular the ability to withstand temporary shocks.  Asset managers and institutional investors have a duty to act in the best interest of their clients, and therefore should be equipped to seize the opportunities and tackle the risks arising from materially relevant ESG factors. Retail investors have also been increasing their direct presence in this segment. With respect to non-financial data, there seems to be a huge learning curve ahead. Transparency, proportionality, the right incentives, and ultimately performance will allow this segment to grow.
