Thought of the week - ESG is a trust issue

Thought of the week - ESG is a trust issue

23 January 2023 | Insights

When I talk to corporate executives who want to know what to do in the ESG space, I tell them that, unlike financial targets, ESG is not about meeting some target number, it is about building trust. And building trust requires extended effort and consistency.

Thought of the week – Digging through the 2023 forecasts

13 January 2023 | Insights

It’s that time of year again - when there are so many publishers of 2023 economic forecasts that it can be difficult to know where to start or how to assimilate everything. Thankfully I’ve come across a very useful summary of the 2023 forecasts from different bulge bracket banks in the highly recommendable free blog Beyond the Balance Sheet here.

Thought of the Week - Christmas edition: Santa Claus is everywhere

21 December 2022 | Insights

Thought of the Week - We do not know which events will make history

Thought of the Week - We do not know which events will make history

09 December 2022 | Insights

The year 2022 seems like it had an unusual number of momentous, history-making events. Certainly, when it comes to UK politics or the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it seems like a year that will live long in memory. But will it? Can people discern in real time which events will be considered relevant a couple of decades in the future?
Thought of the week - Juniorisation

Thought of the week - Juniorisation

24 November 2022 | Insights

It has become a trend in financial services to replace older, more experienced employees with younger ones. I have seen this trend towards juniorisation happen in relationship managers at private banks as well as in financial and research analysts across the entire spectrum of banking, It is a trend that exists predominantly at larger banks and asset managers to save costs, but I suspect it also exists in all kinds of service industries. But does it work? To find out, it is helpful to look at the performance of truly junior salespeople, the Girl Scouts of America.
