“ESG, in particular, is being driven by the consulting world and a few big institutional buyers, so the definition of ESG and how it manifests itself in client portfolios is somewhat unique so it wouldn’t surprise me that they get a lot more traction dealing specifically with consulting firms, and consulting firms that have dedicated people to that space.”
