Richard Brass, Berenberg’s head of UK wealth and asset management, reports that the interest in environmental, social and governance-type investments is ‘not showing any signs of waning’, and as a move to meet this demand an ESG office was opened this year. ‘It’s an important development,’ he says. One of the challenges for the industry is increasing regulatory pressure, but he sees technology as a valuable aid: ‘We can see how fintech evolution will be a significant contributor.’ Brass qualified as a chartered accountant at KPMG before beginning his career in corporate finance, co-founding the European office of Compass Advisers. He joined Berenberg from Schroders in 2011.
