Event Description

Climate Serie II: Managing Climate Risk & Impact

A few weeks ago, we hosted the first panel of our Climate Series. In December, we invite you to our second panel of our series. With various governments setting ambitious carbon emission reduction targets and asset owners making public commitments about net zero portfolios, many in the investment industry seek to manage climate risk and impact.

Panel 2 will focus on client demand and green products and include discussion on:

1. How asset owners are building low-carbon portfolios and implication for asset managers

2. Characteristics of two-degree aligned index and their use

3. Green bond market and its challenges
