The Covid-19 pandemic has thrust ESG into the spotlight like never before.

So we have spoken with a range of industry experts in our new ESG Leaders series of video interviews.

The latest in the series is with Michael Baldinger, Global Head of Sustainable and Impact Investing at UBS Asset Management.

Baldinger thinks ESG has already reached a tipping point, saying: “We would never have imagined how quickly it catches on.”

He says: “Today you sit across the table with the most sophisticated clients in the world and it’s really remarkable and amazing how they’ve got up to speed and how they’ve transformed how they allocate capital.”


The others in the series include Aegon’s Brunno Maradei, Michael Lewis of DWS, Unigestion’s Fiona Frick and Fidelity’s Romain Boscher.
