Sustainable Investing in Wealth Management - Heading

Sustainable Investing in Wealth Management

We at CSP have run trainings for wealth owners since 2015. The Sustainable Investing in Wealth Management training takes the learnings and materials from half a decade of work and turns them into a course that helps wealth managers serve the sustainability interests of their clients better. We know that it works; more than 60% of the participants of our wealth owner trainings are in an advanced stage of impact investing. This program brings wealth managers on the same track.

The training is a hands-on executive education program for client advisors and staff at private banks and family offices. The training is a combination of theory and practice with deep-dives to topics such as:

  • What is sustainable and impact investing and how to feel comfortable with the different approaches,
  • Why HNWIs care about sustainability and what do they need to make investment decisions guided by it,
  • Leading client conversations in sustainable investing and integrating it into client portfolios.


The course is designed for practitioners working in wealth management, especially partners, managers and relationship managers at banks and multi and single family offices.


Past and current speakers include:

  • Dr. Falko Paetzold, Managing Director, CSP 
  • Taeun Kwon, Head of Wealth Manager Programs, CSP 
  • Edith Aldewereld, Partner, Sonnenberg Wealth Management
  • Dr. James Gifford, Founder of the Principles of Responsible Investment
  • Amandine Favier, Head Sustainable Finance, WWF Switzerland
  • Antoine Predour, Head of Debt Energy, ResponsAbility
