Vontobel is now a proud partner of the Moral Money Forum – a Financial Times initiative to engage and inform its audiences on the ESG revolution in business and finance.

With ESG issues seen by many as among the world’s most serious and urgent, ESG investing has become more prevalent in recent years. It is crucial to stay on top of what’s happening in the space and to understand what kind of challenges and opportunities present themselves across the various regions of the world. At Vontobel, we incorporate ESG considerations in our investment process as we believe this enables our clients to better achieve their objectives. As such, it’s imperative we ask the big-picture questions.

Kickstarting our collaboration with the Moral Money Forum is this latest report, which asks if ESG has to be bad news for emerging markets. Vontobel’s deputy head of investments, Christel Rendu de Lint, takes a closer look at the debate about whether ESG is good or bad for emerging markets.
