Financial Services

Create long-term value for business, investors, and society

Investors must consider an ever-expanding range of stakeholders and impacts.

At the same time, financial services companies are navigating a complex regulatory environment, with increasing demands from stakeholders to comply with global sustainability standards and frameworks.

Financial services companies can innovate their approaches to managing material risks and opportunities by addressing a range of issues, including: 

  • Equity, inclusion, and social justice 
  • Climate risk and resilience 
  • Human rights and modern slavery 
  • Stakeholder capitalism 
  • Sustainable investing 
  • Supply chain finance 

BSR advises companies representing all aspects of capital markets, supporting development of prudent financial strategies that fulfill fiduciary duties while enabling responsible deployment of capital, supporting the creation of a more sustainable world.

We’ve worked with 50+ leading global financial services companies, including banks, asset managers, private equity, insurance, ratings agencies, and fintech, to assess and prioritize their sustainability risks and opportunities. Through our partnership and services, we have helped build transformational strategies that create long-term value for businesses, investors, and society.
