Why is sustainable investing so important? Paul Tregidgo, Vice Chairman of Debt Capital Markets in New York, explores this question in the video interview. Searching for new ways of satisfying present-day needs without endangering the future, requires careful use of resources, among other things. The financial market as a capital intermediary has an important role to play here. Especially that a growing number of investors, in particular of younger generations, are looking for financial instruments that also take social and environmental concerns into account.
