Robeco Essentials, launched in October 2018, is a series of elearning modules that gives background information and insights on areas such as sustainable investing. Robeco's aim with this rollout is to further share its knowledge and expertise on key topics, while at the same time enabling Standard Chartered's private banking professionals to enhance their skills and help their clients achieve their investment goals.
In October 2018, an Asian Private Banker survey sponsored by Robeco indicated that 65% of relationship managers have received limited or no ESG-related training in the last 12 months, but that 52% of relationship managers' clients have shown an interest in ESG-related investments over the past 24 months. To fill this gap, Robeco and Standard Chartered Private Bank decided to join forces by offering Robeco Sustainable Investing Essentials to the bank's private banking employees in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and the UK.
The Robeco Sustainable Investing Essentials module explains what sustainable investing is and how ESG integration works in this context, clarifies trends and misconceptions around sustainable investing, takes a closer look at performance and active ownership, and details a number of specific case studies. The test at the end of the module gives participants two hours towards their Continuous Professional Development (CPD) accreditation. Robeco Sustainable Investing Essentials is recognized under The Institute of Banking and Finance Singapore's (IBF) Financial Training Scheme (FTS).Access the full press release
