We’re here to foster responsible wealth transition practices

During the covid-19 pandemic, the world experienced dramatic economic consequences with significant disruptions to the world’s financial system. Simultaneously, the global crisis accelerated digital transformation and increased awareness of the importance of sustainability and risk management.

We established the Centre for a Responsible Wealth Transition (CRWT) to support and empower businesses, investors, and financial institutions in post-pandemic recovery towards a new and responsible economic model.
