The future of ESG in asset management – In conversation with Jonathan Boyd Director of Media Relations and Editorial Fortuna Asset Management Communications The global asset management community has long been among the leaders in recognising the investment and risk management benefits of tracking the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance of the assets it invests in. This pressure from the asset management community has driven companies to make better disclosures in relation to ESG criteria. However, requirements and the level of complexity have significantly increased with the latest regulatory wave. The EU Action Plan combined with the EU Taxonomy and the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) are part of an ambitious legislative framework that will significantly shape sustainable investing. PwC estimated that overall ESG mutual fund assets will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5% between 2017 and 2025, to reach US$ 2.08 trillion.[1] Investor demand and evolving regulations are pressuring asset managers to enhance their current operating models and core processes in order to embrace ESG investing. Asset managers have a crucial role to make to the growing debate about how the financial system can better serve the kind of world we all seek to live in – safe, clean, and prosperous. In this interview with Jonathan Boyd Director of Media Relations and Editorial Fortuna Asset Management Communications we explore current trends in sustainable finance and how the EU regulations impact not only the European market, but also the rest of the world.

Sam is the CEO and a co-founder of FitXR. Sam began his career as a management consultant at PwC in Auckland, New Zealand and then worked in private equity after moving to London in 2014. FitXR is all about making fitness fun and accessible to everyone. The main problem with the traditional gym is that the wrong people are going to it. It's those who already have a background in exercise and sport, who continue to train throughout their lives. These people enjoy the gym experience or the physical and aesthetic benefits it provides. But this is not the case for the increasingly inactive population who are put off by the traditional gym experience. They believe VR fitness can help bridge this gap and believe the way to appeal to a wider range of people than just those that are in shape is to make exercise feel more like play. When you're a kid running around outside you don't think of what you are doing as exercise. If adults felt that same joy when they were working out, more would form consistent habits.

Change at any level can be difficult. However, inside a large organization, it can be more so because for that change to not only take place, but to do so effectively, often means the transition of power, and those who have the power, are not usually in a hurry to give it up. So, can we implement genuine and meaningful change as a way to confront the Obstructionism of Innovation without creating a cultural civil war? You might be surprised.

How upskilling could resolve the cybersecurity skills gap

Irish Tech News Audio Articles

Guest post by David Steele, MD of SecuriCentrix and Cyber Security Analyst. Cybersecurity has a skills shortage. The problem is so bad that many are referring to it as a crisis and are deeply pessimistic for the future. In a 2021 report by the Information Systems Security Association and Enterprise Strategy Group, the crisis was said to be continuing “on a downward, multi-year trend of bad to worse.” Upskilling could resolve cybersecurity skills gap The result has been that many companies face recruitment difficulties. An estimated 3.5 million vacancies went unfilled last year. (In Ireland, it's estimated that 10,000 workers are needed to plug the cybersecurity gap.) And that means that businesses are struggling to maintain their security, and the staff they do have are forced to work under extreme pressure. It is difficult to conclude that traditional recruitment, hoping that the employment market can provide candidates with the right skills in place, will address the issue. As a result, more and more businesses are turning to upskilling. Why is there a skills gap in cybersecurity? Like so many challenges businesses face, the cybersecurity skills gap is a result of the Covid-19 pandemic exacerbating underlying trends. Cybersecurity, by definition, is an evolving field. Every advance in technology, both hardware and software, can bring risks and challenges. We have, within just a few decades, moved on from a situation where security was largely physical: a business network was generally contained in a single location. With no external connection, it was simply a case of controlling access. For some, it might have been as simple as disabling drives and USB ports, or just having locks on the door. But since then, the field of cybersecurity has grown rapidly. Email and the internet added more threats, creating new attack routes for networks. But the increase in working-from-home has created an exponential rise in the dangers. People now connect from homes that will probably have dozens of devices. The network that connects them to their work will also be connecting anything from their printer to their TV or fridge. And since most people are not cybersecurity professionals, each of those connections poses a risk. Prior to the pandemic, while a growing, but still relatively small, trend of working from home might have been a headache, the pandemic transformed the landscape. Almost overnight everyone needed to be working from home, and cybersecurity became an urgent and real issue, even for those businesses that had never had to consider it before. The problem was that there simply weren't enough suitably qualified people to handle the size of the challenge. While many businesses had exceptional cybersecurity teams, they simply weren't able to scale to meet the explosion in demand. Although professionals were able to make things work, they did so under unsustainable pressure. The challenge of matching demand and supply Although the intense pressure of the initial stages of the pandemic may have passed, cybersecurity professionals still face significant demands. With remote working now established as common practice, they must manage security in a wide range of uncontrolled environments. And this is against a backdrop of increased complexity with cloud solutions and multiple third-party connections. All of these add to the risk. On the other side of the coin, those seeking to exploit vulnerabilities are constantly adapting their attacks. Cybercrime is relatively cheap to commission and easy to carry out. With a low risk of detection and prosecution, cybercriminals can carry out attacks on an industrial scale. While most might fail, the rewards of a successful attack can be large. In a survey by PWC, nearly half of CEOs consider cyber risks a threat to their company's growth, and nearly all expect the rate of attacks to increase. Unfortunately, the traditional supply of staff is too small to meet the increasing demands. Taking the ...
