More money could be mobilised towards sustainability Lack of visibility & greenwashing Data overload & regulatory burden Complexity for end investors Rapid growth in the sustainable investment market coupled with lack of transparency Knowledge gaps to effectively evaluate sustainability Loss of confidence from recent scandals Increasing levels of regulation & reporting requirements The output is not accessible to end investors due to complexity How to turn the burden into opportunities ? Too many „green“ options Lots of confusing jargon . Lack of intuitive tools to easily compare options. Financial institutions and investors are missing the tools to benefit from the “Green Goldrush.” Regulatory push: No. 1 priority in EU to tackle "Greenwashing" & create transparency. Huge demand pull: The rapid growth of appetite for sustainable products. We are the missing link: Why us, right now? Problem We provide the “picks and shovels” to benefit from the "Green Goldrush“.

Confidential Working paper Confidential Read our working paper: A view on end - investor types in sustainable investment A view on end - investor types in sustainable investment Chaskel, Hume, Li Originally written in 2022, revised in 2023 Abstract Sustainable investment has become a global movement with $53 trillion assets under management expected in 2025. It is no longer a side - show but a mainstream trend that is reaching private investors across the world. However, the real - world impact of such investments is often difficult to understand and benefits other than financial return are difficult to quantify. Also, as retail investors are often emotionally driven and do not necessarily make fact - based investment decisions, financial institutions are struggling to channel capital towards sustainable investment products. It is therefore necessary to understand the investor types and their individual motivations that can trigger them to make sustainable investments, rather than non - sustainable ones. This working paper proposes a framework that splits sustainable investors into four categories and outlines thoughts on how financial institutions can use this framework for developing more private investor - oriented solutions.
