#1 Green Future – Interview Claus Hecher | BNP Paribas

Claus Hecher – Head of Business Development ETFs and Index Solutions – von BNP Paribas im GGX – Green Future Interview über Nachhaltigkeit, ETFs und andere Projekte von BNP Paribas.

Claus, it is a great pleasure to have you with us today. First of all, what does sustainability mean to you personally?

BNP Paribas has established itself as one of the leading asset managers integrating ESG solutions for many years. Where is this movement coming from… From management itself or more from investor demand/public pressure?

Some critics argue that ETFs can only play a limited role in actively influencing listed companies on their ESG behaviour. What do you think about this?

What feedback do you receive from clients when you talk about sustainable investments?

Which ESG index concept do you like best?

Which of your ETFs are currently most in demand?

What other initiatives towards sustainability does BNP Paribas Asset Management plan to take in the near future?

Claus Hecher has been Head of ETF Sales & Index Solutions (D/A/CH) at BNP Paribas Asset Management in German-speaking countries since July 2016. He began his professional career in 1987 at Deutsche Bank AG. He subsequently worked for the investment banks Bear Sterns and Natixis CIB, as well as BlackRock, from 2003.
