ESG Services for Financial Institutions

Finance Sector Support

Financial Institutions (FIs) are increasingly leveraging the value of Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) from both a risk management and opportunity perspective.

As well as protecting operations and investments, FIs are using ESG to differentiate their brands for both investment and employees, as well as customer attraction and retention.

FIs are subject to a series of recent and emerging regulatory standards that are driving significant action. These cover a range of ESG topics, including climate risk, and increasingly, product classifications. The sector also has industry frameworks and organisations driving common approaches and standards around ESG and Responsible Investment.

Anthesis’ Sustainable Finance team understands these unique challenges and has delivered ESG strategy development and implementation support to a broad range of financial institutions across banking, insurance, asset owners and managers (including Private Equity), brokerage, support and advisory business, and worked with multinational financial institutions, and regional and national regulators and supervisory agencies.

In addition, our team brings decades of experience of supporting our clients with mergers and acquisition and transaction support as well as with sustainable finance products.

We help Financial Institutions to achieve three key objectives:


ESG Strategy, Implementation & Reporting
M&A & Transactions

Developing & activating ESG strategies alongside comprehensive reporting & disclosure solutions.

Anthesis supported us in the preparation of our 2018 Integrated Report and in the development of the materiality analysis of Roche Colombia. Their experience and knowledge were key to allowing us to focus on the most important issues for our company and stakeholders, and helped them [our stakeholders]  understand our advances in environmental, economic, social and good corporate governance.

I have worked with Anthesis for many years. They have a depth of ESG understanding and expertise, allowing real analysis and advice on the emerging issues that are becoming increasingly material to our clients. What sets them apart is their willingness and ability to apply this, together with technology solutions, to enhance the quality and speed of their reporting.

We wanted the ESG screen as we were keen to understand the definition of ESG and to see the criteria you would be using. We were also interested to see how others would view us through this lens. The Anthesis screen provided us a with a “mirror”. The value to Neste was that it confirmed we are on a right track to addressing ESG issues. It also helped us to identify some potential improvement opportunities, several of which we are working on, and others that warrant further evaluation.

An absolute pleasure to work with, Anthesis have seamlessly integrated into our ways of working. Immediately grasping where we were in our ESG maturity, they have shown a genuine desire to help us move things forward through applying expertise and passion from across a vast array of subjects and sectors.
