This is a Research and Analytical Paper, Hence one needs to reflect the Analytical thinking when writing, with a proper conclusion.
ESG (Environmental, social, & Corporate Governance) is a new framework currently impacting financial institutions from both investment & banking. What I am interested in is how this ESG framework will impact banks in the GCC (Gulf), how banks can incorporate this new framework in their strategy and operating model? What this will entail in terms of changes to their current operating models (Changes in process, governance, data, infrastructure, KPIs, process, etc.) and how they can contribute to pushing the ESG agenda with Corporate and SME (Small-Medium Entities) clients e.g. via financing and portfolio diversification etc.
