Innovation in Investment explores how new avenues of investment opportunities are being created via developments in technology, as well as through the lens of sustainability.
Its key conclusions include:
· Emerging markets will catch up with and at times surpass developed markets, both as destinations and sources for sustainable, responsible and impact (SRI) investment, and in the development of fin tech solutions
· Technology will “democratise” investment as solutions emerge to harness and analyse data on behalf of the individual user, narrowing the gap in terms of access to information and investment opportunities
· An SRI-fintech feedback loop; Fintech could allow for automation of elements of SRI asset management, making it easier for investors to achieve impact goals.
