Investor Sustainability Preferences: Empirical Insights and Regulatory Analysis

The research report analyses how institutional investors (e.g., pension funds, insurers), corporate clients (e.g., Swiss SMEs) and other asset owners view the transition towards a more sustainable economy,  especially in light of regulatory initiatives to support Switzerland's Blueprint 2030, and, based on that, draw a pathway that details what can be done to support asset owner preferences, particularly what UBS AM can do to contribute to realizing asset owner preferences.

The research project is conducted by Prof. Alexander and his team (UBS sponsored research project). For additional information about the research project, please visit the Research Network for Sustainable Finance UBS research project
