Banques

Description

Introduction

Bankers are facing fresh challenges due to the emergence of sustainability regulations applicable to investment firms. These regulations extend to product governance, investment advice, and portfolio management. In contrast to the traditional suitability assessment that concentrates on a client's risk profile, knowledge, experience, financial situation, and objectives, the new ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) requirements go further. Bankers' recommendations now include considerations for clients' sustainability preferences. Therefore, acquiring additional skills and relevant expertise is crucial for compliance with the evolving regulatory landscape and to meet clients' expectations regarding ESG criteria.
