UBS President Asia Pacific Edmund Koh

“I am excited to share that our flagship conference was very well received, and saw strong participation by many of Asia’s wealthiest business owners and institutional investors. It is heartening to see increased awareness among our clients in the adoption of ESG practices, and we hope to catalyze this further.

In line with our new global purpose on – Reimagining the power of investing. Connecting people for a better world – we announced our commitment to be net-zero in our own operations by 2025. Last year, we became the first financial institution to make sustainable investments our preferred solution to private clients investing globally. And core sustainable investments surged 62% year-on-year to USD793 billion in 2020, making up nearly 20% of all client invested assets.”


August Hatecke, Co-head of Wealth Management Asia-Pacific and Country Head of UBS Singapore:

“We believe that investments that support a sustainable future will likely benefit financially over the long term. In Asia-Pacific, we’ve seen more of our clients, particularly those from the millennial generation, appreciating the importance of sustainable development.

About 70% of our clients in Asia are entrepreneurs who are now becoming more focused on sustainability. And the reason is because they’ve found that sustainable investments can generate equal, or superior returns compared to traditional investments.”


Desmond Kuek, Divisional Vice-Chairman in UBS Global Wealth Management and Head of the Sustainable Finance Committee in UBS Global Office of Sustainability & Impact:

“Growing investor demand and government support are likely to drive issuance and could lead to a doubling of total Asian sustainable bonds outstanding within the next three years.

Here in Asia, the sustainable bond market has grown significantly since 2018. Year-to-date issuance in Asia has reached USD31 billion, already surpassing the annual levels seen in the last three years.”
