The ESG world

Responsible investment and sustainability

A major commitment for the whole Group

Sustainable Investments ESG

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are gaining increasing prominence in the investing world.

In keeping with the instructions and decisions of the Banco BPM Group, at Banca Akros we are also working to integrate ESG criteria into our extensive offering.

In addition, in compliance with regulatory instructions, part of the variable remuneration of our top management is linked to ESG objectives and the whole bank is carrying on for its personnel an important training course on ESG aspects.

Operating according to concrete strategies

BUSINESS

ESG factors are central to many of our businesses, including:

  • investing in sustainable bond issues (Green, Social, Sustainable, Sustainability-Linked Bonds) from corporate issuers, governments and supranational entities;
  • structuring and issuing investment certificates with underlying ESG indices or securities;
  • contributing to the growth path of our corporate clients supporting them covering financial risks or with securitisations both linked to ESG factors or through M&A activities associated with sustainable business.
FINANCIAL RESEARCH

We support institutional investors in placing increased focus on sustainability through ESG factors (such as the risks and opportunities associated with climate change) by providing financial assessments and analyses that include ESG content.

Specifically, our financial research includes comment on the ESG approach taken by issuers in a paragraph entitled “ESG Focus”.

EVENTS

We encourage meetings on ESG issues between representatives of listed companies and investors, participating as an organiser and/or partner through a range of conferences and seminars with Italian and foreign listed companies.

These events are important opportunities for communication and visibility, especially for listed Italian SMEs, allowing companies to meet with domestic and international investors. During these meetings, the ESG objectives of the different companies are shared and discussed.

A strategy for sustainability

We have implemented a number of actions to bring together supply and demand for sustainable investments with ESG criteria. From events, financial research and the issuing of Certificates and specific products, we have shaped strategies with a view to the future.
