The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the move towards sustainable investments as global investors were already shifting away from existing benchmarks to sustainable alternatives. On top of this are regulatory drivers such as the EU’s Action Plan on Sustainable Finance and Green Deal. Part of this ‘new normal’ is the emergence of derivatives as a powerful tool to help ESG integration. Derivatives on ESG benchmarks offer a way to help facilitate ESG integration while offering a cost-efficient and liquid solution with a low tracking error close to benchmark performance.

The webcast explained how these new products can help to transform portfolios.

  • Index Methodologies: Screened Indices vs. Universal Indices
  • Derivatives as a tool for ESG risk management & ESG integration
  • Role in portfolios: liquidity, tracking error and carbon footprint
  • Emerging markets: volumes and client interest
  • Next steps: forthcoming market developments
