This is the fifth episode of our podcast “The world of Fund Selection” conducted by Carla Solera, Investor Relations Specialist at RankiaPro Europe.
In this fifth episode of the world of fund selection titled “Greenwashing in the asset management industry” we had Pierre Bermond, Asset allocation and fund selection specialist at EOS Allocations, talked about how the industry is changing thanks to ESG and the importance to make a deep research in the funds you are selecting, to avoid those that make greenwashing.
“I think is both it is a trend and it is also transforming portfolio management” “ESG is transforming the asset management industry”
“You need to dig into the analysis, you need to understand what the portfolio manager is doing, you need to understand the intentionality of the asset management company, is it just marketing or do they want to make things better?”
“They know there is a trend, and they are trying to say, we are ESG, but we were ESG before“Pierre Bermond, Asset allocation and fund selection specialist at EOS Allocations
