A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in sustainable finance and ESG: the Defining the future of sustainable finance free webinar on June 21.
The approach adopted by firms towards ESG and related risks is evolving. Firms typically see ESG risk as more nebulous, falling within their strategic risk or Capital & Liquidity management processes. However, ESG risk will in time come to be viewed as a transverse risk, cutting across different risk classes -operational, market, credit, liquidity, and conduct.
Topics for this discussion will include:
What does ESG mean for an asset managers’ current and longer-term strategies? How should sustainability risks and the different facets of E, S and G be integrated into the risk management framework – and how do E, S and G risk factors affect risk management, monitoring, measurement, stress testing, and reporting? What data is required – and what is available – and how can ESG risks be scored and quantified? What are the required next steps to ensure compliance with key global regulatory requirements such as the EU taxonomy for sustainable activities?
To discuss this challenge, we have gathered a panel of global leading industry experts:
Anna Sophie Herken, Business Division Head at Allianz Asset Management GmbH
David R. Koenig, President and Chief Executive Officer, The DCRO Institute
Johan van Duyvendijk,- Head of CUSO Market & Treasury Risk Control at UBS
The panel discussion will be led by Capco Partner Dr. Olaf Clemens, and Dr. Harald Glander, Partner at international law firm Simmons & Simmons, and will be followed by an interactive audience Q&A session.
