1. Has client demand for Impact investing, SRI, ESG increased? Do you provide these solutions in-house?

The demand for ESG-related investments or green investments has increased dramatically. Asia's been behind the curve for a long time compared to North America and Europe. It's very quickly picking up. What we do, and we have done for a few years now, just to give you an example, is we report E, S and G scores separately in our client statements. We proactively have discussions with our clients, because we also report the ESG scores at a portfolio level, to see how they can improve these scores by switching from one security to another, and one with more ESG credentials. Interestingly if you look at ESG in relation to securities and their ratings, there's a lot of evidence that those companies with high scores actually perform better in terms of returns, and superior returns as well. We're very proactively supporting our clients with advice with regards to ESG.
