ESG & RI in Switzerland: Alpha’s Insights & How We Can Support You

Cathrine Hansen, Nicolas Grangeon
With Switzerland committing to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, it is paramount that financial institutions do the same. In addition to this, there is an increased focus on the prevention of greenwashing in the Swiss market, and the requirements for data and transparency are greater than ever. This poses a large number of challenges and opportunities for Asset and Wealth Managers, and because of Alpha’s unique dedication to this industry as well as rich experience across the ESG & RI value chain, our clients often ask us:
  • “We have developed an ESG & RI strategy, but we do not have sufficient buy-in”
  • “We want to launch Article 8 and 9 products, but we are concerned about Greenwashing accusations”
  • “We have committed to Net Zero by 2050, but I am not sure how we get there”
  • “What do clients expect with respect to ESG reporting? And how do we scale this?”
  • “I am concerned about the regulation. Am I doing enough and how do I make sure we are prepared for what’s coming?”
Does any of this resonate with you? If so, please get in touch with us and check out our placemat on Key ESG & RI Challenges in the Swiss Market. We would be thrilled to plan an introductory call to discuss the key ESG & RI challenges we help your peers solve and learn more about your main challenges at the moment.
