QUOTE and MOTIVATION OF BLOG

There was a time dedicated to traveling, communicating, deepening, listening, processing the complexity of the countries visited and at the same time studying their history, demographic dynamics, politics and socio-economic development with a careful eye on the correlations that past events inevitably leave to the analysis of the present. In a world of fake news, of reality, artful and exploited for political purposes, all that remains is the ambition to contribute to investigative journalism attentive to the current situation in the financial markets that ten years after the global crisis appear extraordinarily interesting for the step imprinted by a digital revolution that impacts corporate valuations as the audience of financial products made available to savers.

The 2016 COP21 Paris Climate Conference is the milestone from which a new awareness has arisen about the need for a common pro-activity of governments on the platform of the global objectives of the 2030 Agenda. A unique opportunity to impose a new step on international financial markets, combining financial returns with the issuance of products that take into account the actual environmental and social impact until it pushes for a drastic change in the governance of Big Corporates but not only.

A beautiful response finally to the nemesis of subprime loans that still hovers on Wall Street 10 years after the “great crisis” and a revolution that starts from asset management to the provision of credit and that sees companies compete around the world to demonstrate a new commitment to make sustainability a primary value for the general well-being of the community.
