Private Wealth and ESG

Contact us

Private wealth plays an increasingly important role in supporting the global movement to align our financial system with sustainable development and driving better management of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, all of which are key to achieving the desired positive impact on the planet.

We support trustees, foundations, family offices and high-net-worth individuals (HNWIs) seeking to ensure that the structuring and investment of private wealth effectively integrates ESG and/or is positively "impactful" from an environmental and/or social perspective. 

We innovate to meet evolving legal and regulatory requirements and help clients respond to such changes, whether they aim to focus on value based investing, integrating ESG to manage risk, to achieve impact, or otherwise.

We understand the interaction between fiduciary duties, good governance and the mitigation of fiduciary risk with the goal of aligning the investment of private wealth with the families' sustainable investment vision. Details of our services are set out below.
