Barclays Sustainable and Impact Banking Group

Noticed Barclays recently formed this group (Oct. 2019) as a new coverage area. Given the increased importance that this area will have over the next few years this team seems interesting, but would it be a good place to work as an analyst? Seems like a higher-risk option than joining a team that is already well established, but could be very interesting. Also seems like it might be focussed mainly on financing - would there be lots of M&A too?

Thanks

RBC also has a Sustainable Finance group (https://www.rbccm.com/en/expertise/sustainable-finance.page)
"Our Sustainable Finance Group integrates environmental, social and governance ("ESG") factors into our core capital markets platform, working in collaboration with partners in Global Investment Banking, Global Markets and Corporate Banking to deliver advice and solutions to our clients that also aim to have a positive impact on the world."

Hope this helps.

Looking to hear what others have to say as well. I think it would be a decent pre-MBA story to tell and could also set you up to transition into similar coverage at PE/investment shops who all now have a ESG arm. As usual though, I think joining a new team is a bad idea if you already have a career goal and that goal has a fairly established path.
