Responsible investing, widely understood as the integration of environmental, social and governance factors into investment processes and decision-making, has fast become an integral part of the conversation between managers and investors. Although Europe is leading the ESG charge with the recent introduction of the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, which comes into effect on 10 March 2021, North American and other financial centres across the globe are quickly catching up. We see many global managers and their investors are not only actively pushing the agenda on sustainable and responsible investment, but also driving the market direction for a greener society.
The Maples Group works with leading investment managers and institutional investors in Europe, America and Asia to implement ESG policies and frameworks into their operational infrastructure. This provides us with a 360-degree perspective as to how fund industry leaders are approaching ESG. We are well-positioned to action customised mandates for services incorporating ESG for managers of all sizes and across the spectrum of strategies.
With strong support from the Irish Government, the Central Bank of Ireland ("CBI") and local industry, we believe that Ireland, in particular, will build on its highly successful funds and investment management sector and become a global centre of excellence for sustainable investment funds.
