Maybank Investment Banking Group putting ESG first

Sustainability is not the first word that comes to mind when one thinks of investment banking, but Maybank Investment Banking Group (Maybank IBG) wants to change that. As awareness of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues grows in Malaysia, Maybank IBG aims to be at the forefront, driving the global agenda of sustainability among its peers. 2021 is a significant year for the investment banking group as it represents the 10th year of its acquisition of Kim Eng, then the largest equities franchise in the region. “Over the last 10 years, the vision was to become Asean’s leading investing group. For the next 10 years, the vision is [centred] around being Asean’s ‘sustainability first’ bank,” declares CEO Ami Moris in a virtual interview with The Edge.
