Financing A More Sustainable Future

The sustainable finance market has grown significantly in the past year. This stems from a range of factors, from the COVID-19 pandemic to the election of a new administration in the US to the development of new financial tools to an increasing consensus around standards for sustainable finance instruments and disclosure of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. It is underpinned by a growing consensus among governments, business, and the public that climate change represents a clear and present threat to human welfare and natural resources, as well as to asset portfolios.

Resetting the agenda: White Paper

The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed a wealth of interconnections – between ecological and human wellbeing, between economic and environmental fragility, between social inequality and health outcomes, and more. The consequences of these connections are now filtering through, reshaping our society and economy.

Risky business: Financial compliance and covid-19

The covid-19 pandemic has kept workers confined to their homes for months on end, significantly increasing the role of digital tools in keeping a firm connected. In heavily regulated sectors like finance, the sheer volume of communications that is now generated over digital channels is raising crucial questions about whether, how and to what extent organisations should exercise oversight of employee communications. 

Making up for lost time: The race to digitise banks in Latin America

Latin America had a late start in the digitisation of financial services but has ramped up its efforts in the past five years, making up for lost time. There is now a bustling ecosystem with over 1,166 financial technology (fintech) start-ups in the region. Governments have also recognised the potential of digitisation and have developed specific regulation to level the playing field between top-tier banks and new entrants.

Leveraging Opportunity in Change: Navigating the Trends Shaping Private Markets in 2021 and Beyond

2020 brought profound change that will continue to influence financial markets for years to come. The covid-19 pandemic hampered economies and exacerbated market volatility, leaving investors to process the short- and longer-term impacts. Geopolitical tensions and growth in anti-globalist policies are also creating structural changes which investors must factor into their investment strategies. Despite increasing risks, however, investors are confident that private-market assets will continue to offer opportunities for long-term growth.

Trade in Transition

Eight months ago, the world trade outlook for 2020 was worse than grim. The World Trade Organisation (WTO) released a report in April forecasting that, in its worst-case scenario, the pandemic could push trade down by as much as 32% by year’s end. It was a striking figure, but also within the bounds of reason. Most of the world’s major economies were in lockdowns of varying severity, international travel had come to an almost complete stop and supply chains for essential goods appeared on the edge of collapse.

家族辦公室熱潮:東西方差異對比

《家族辦公室熱潮:東西方差異對比》由星展私人銀行委託經濟學人智庫撰寫。

家族辦公室指專為超高淨值資產人士 (UHNWI) 提供個人投資服務的公司,在全球金融市場中的影響力日漸增強。管理顧問安永 (EY) 的調查數據顯示,自2008 年以來,家族辦公室的數量增加了10 倍,目前已達到約10,000 間。

隨着全球億萬富翁人數持續增加,與他們相關的家族辦公室數目、資產及影響力也隨之增加。家族辦公室源自西方富有的英美商人,但過去連續 5 年,卻由亞洲榮膺全球最富裕地區。

本報告以東方(泛指亞洲地區)及西方(歐洲及北美)的家族辦公室為研究對象,對比各自的運作模式,並探討文化、家族及財富創造在其結構和管理方面所擔當的角色。

這項研究建基於廣泛的案例研究,以及以家族辦公室擁有者、經理及顧問作為對象的訪談。我們感謝以下受訪者撥冗參與:
