Jersey Finance sponsored a Hubbis mini-survey of the upper echelons of the Asian wealth market in terms of high-net-worth (HNW) and ultra-HNW (UHNW) clients and their relationship to ESG and investing for impact and sustainability.

Hubbis surveyed 112 wealth management leaders and decision-makers in Asia.

To sum up key findings and observations from the survey: ESG-driven investing in Asia is engaging more and more advocates and supporters, but for private client investors to take the next step, there must be greater global standardisation, more regulatory support, and greater understanding among those private investors, and more evidence that this will genuinely help their portfolios outperform as well as mitigate risks.
