Governance and Sustainability - A guide to private wealth structures for single and multiple family offices
04 May 2021
Throughout 2020 – and despite the Covid-19 pandemic – the demand surged for sustainable finance and there was a drive within financial centres for a greener recovery. Sustainable finance is now widely recognised as an ‘investment megatrend’, and one that is not likely to fade in 2021 and beyond. However, even with record-breaking numbers in green bonds and the growing requirements for ESG and sustainable investing, capital flowing into sustainable and net-zero projects is still not enough to reach the trillions needed annually to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.
As identified in both our own research with on-island private wealth practitioners, and by the United Nations’ Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S) annual assessment – in which Guernsey Green Finance was a participating member – one of the key drivers to mobilising private capital to sustainable investment is to ensure that both the market and the practitioners themselves are suitably educated on the barriers, opportunities and impacts of sustainable investing.
This guide, developed with Peter Hodson of Hodson & Company Limited, aims to provide private wealth practitioners with guidance on how to build good governance practices. These practices will aid the movement towards sustainable family offices and investment practices.
