Deliver positive change with your securities
ESG is a watershed moment for capital markets. A chance to make our industry more sustainable and more responsible.
Most ESG initiatives in securities lending have focused on Governance questions, tinkering with the nuts and bolts of existing services. They haven’t addressed our world’s most pressing Environmental and Social issues.
