Ogier Global's ESG and Impact Services practice is a dedicated advisory business offering bespoke ESG and Impact design, integration, and implementation solutions to our clients.
We work across the spectrum of asset classes facilitating asset owners, asset managers, banks, corporates, investment funds, institutional investors, private wealth, family offices and foundations to manage environmental and social factors and to integrate such considerations into their business or investment decisions for the lasting benefit of clients and society.
We recognise there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to ESG and Impact and have built our advisory practice to provide tailored advice according to our clients' needs.
We recognise several global megatrends are shaping the ESG and Impact agenda today, including – the climate crisis, evolving regulation, growing investor demand and increased awareness that accounting for ESG factors may lead to better risk-adjusted financial return in the long-run.
Paris 2015 saw governments around the world take action on the climate crisis and commit to limit global warming to no more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial temperatures. Since then financial markets have awoken to climate change as a source of financial risk, and have started to factor such risks into investment decisions. We have also seen environmental risk factors take front seat by dominating the long-term risk outlook highlighted by international bodies such as the World Economic Forum (WEF) in the latest Global Risks Report.
Evolving regulations are pressuring financial market participants to enhance their current operating models to refine, embrace, and embed ESG practices today. Authorities around the world are moving ahead to require enhanced disclosure on ESG or sustainability factors of investment products and business activities to assist investment decision-making. We have witnessed this with the introduction of regulatory disclosure requirements for example in the EU, UK, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Investor demand is also growing, driven by younger generations and high net worth individuals seeking to invest with their values. This is pushing asset managers to act and respond with sustainable investment solutions that match investors risk, return and impact profile.
Growing awareness that accounting for ESG factors may lead to better risk-adjusted financial return in the long-run has also driven momentum in the field. Difficulties however remain with data availability, comparability and consistency – factors that we believe will be smoothed out as the market matures.
