About this book

This book explores sustainable wealth management and the challenges that arise for asset managers in times of ecological crises and climate change. It deals with portfolio engineering, combining risk and impact, transitioning from environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concepts to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) concepts and the different role of the intermediaries and players in the financial markets. It provides researchers, scholars, academics and policy makers an interdisciplinary approach to redirecting capital towards sustainability.
