The Italian Private Banking Association (Aipb) has announced the launch of the new training course “ESG Certification” for Private Bankers and Financial Consultants dedicated to Esg.
Despite the high instability in the financial markets, it reads in a note, “the figures for the first quarter of 2020 show increasing investor interest in environmental, social and governance issues: net positive flows in sustainable funds amounted to $45.6 billion globally, compared to net redemptions of $384.7 billion from traditional instruments. Europe remains the most sensitive region on ESG issues, with a 72.5% share of total fundraising.”

The “ESG Certification” project was presented by Aipb at the SRI 2019
The SRI Show is the main national event on sustainable finance, with a specific focus on ESG products and strategies. 23 SGR, more than 10 high-level partners, 9 conferences and workshops with international experts, in a day of in-depth analysis and study on the dynamics of the SRI market.
Dedicated to ESG consultants, investors, managers, professionals, companies, and researchers, the Show represents a unique space of comparison and knowledge for the sector. The event will also host the third edition of the SRI Awards, prizes awarded to the best SRI products distributed in Italy.
At the end of the course, participants will take an exam
The Certification will last 30 hours to be carried out in digital mode, through Aipb’s e-learning platform and virtual classrooms. The study plan, as can be read in the note, has been designed on the specific Consob requirements following the entry into force of the new Intermediaries Regulation, which has completed the phase of transposition into Italian law of the Mifid II Directive.
The course complies with the knowledge and competence requirements of Esma (30 hours per year) and the IVASS Regulation for maintenance (15 hours per year). The teaching staff is composed of: University Professors of prestigious Italian Universities, authoritative professionals in the sector, representatives of the Private Banking industry, opinion leaders in the sector.
In order to obtain the Certification, an exam is scheduled at the end of the course.
“Also in Italy – said Antonella Massari, Secretary-General of Aipb – the sector of sustainable and responsible investments (Sri) is growing strongly with a growing interest of private clients for Sri products: the criteria of sustainability, social responsibility, and inclusiveness are becoming, on the one hand, relevant for the saver in the choice of his trusted advisor and, on the other hand, they are a decisive competitive factor for the industry. With this Certification, the Association responds to the need to increase information and training on these issues.”
“In the ideal supply chain that connects producers of financial instruments and services, distributors and investors – commented Professor Mauro Camelia, Aggregate Professor of Economics of Financial Intermediaries at the University of Siena and Scientific Director of ESG Certification – it is essential that the private banker/financial advisor, as the main influencer of sustainable and responsible investments, has advanced skills on these issues.”
