Thought of the Week - What makes a company successful?

Thought of the Week - What makes a company successful?

25 June 2021 | Insights

I recently attended a very interesting presentation by Dan Ariely hosted by one of the best consultants on corporate performance, and employee management, MindGym. These guys approach human resources from an angle that is truly based on science, not management theory or the latest fad in how to motivate people and manage organisations. So, they teamed up with Dan Ariely, one of the best behavioural psychologists in the world, and asked what makes a company perform really well? The answer will surprise you: It’s their people.

Thought of the Week - Standard or ESG benchmark?

Thought of the Week - Standard or ESG benchmark?

18 June 2021 | Insights

As ESG investing becomes more and more popular, investors are thinking about switching their benchmarks from a traditional index like the MSCI country indices or the FTSE indices to an ESG benchmark calculated by these companies or other providers. Alternatively, they may keep their benchmark indices in place but instead, invest in an ETF or fund that tracks an ESG benchmark. In both cases, the risk is that by investing with sustainability criteria in mind, the portfolio may start to underperform, especially if sectors like energy and mining start to rally.

Then I have good news for you: The Euro 2020 2021 starts today and will last until 11 July. As we all know, football is going to dominate the headlines for the next month and this can be exploited by companies.

Thought of the Week - Why do people invest in cryptocurrencies?

Thought of the Week - Why do people invest in cryptocurrencies?

04 June 2021 | Insights

No matter whether you are a fan of cryptocurrencies or not, they are here to stay and more and more investors are buying some. Some people argue that cryptocurrencies are the new gold for the digital age, while others look at it as a purely speculative trade. But I have a hard time finding any good systematic data on what drives people to invest in Bitcoin or Ethereum.
