From today, ABN AMRO’s investment clients can see what impact they have made with their investments.
The impact was already stated in the quarterly updates clients received, but is now also visible in internet banking and via app.
Vincent Triesschijn, head of ESG at ABN AMRO: ‘Our clients want to have an insight into the sustainable impact they are making with their assets in addition to an overview of the financial results. If a client would like to get in touch with us to discuss increasing the sustainability of their portfolio, we will be happy to talk to them.
ESG risk score
Consumer clients in asset management and private banking clients using our advisory services can see the actual impact of their investments using the ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) risk score for their investment portfolio. In the coming months, information will be added on the contribution to the Paris Climate Agreement of the companies in our clients’ investment portfolios, their carbon emissions, and the UN Social Development Goals. There will be an explanation of how the scores are calculated. ABN AMRO uses independent external sources for these calculations.
Outside the Netherlands
This service is already available for clients of ABN AMRO’s private bank in Germany, Bethmann Bank. Later this year, clients in France and Belgium will also be able to digitally access information on their impact.
