Financial markets are moving toward a greener model, driven by major global asset owners, governments and societies around the world. In an effort combat climate change and create sustainable portfolios, major investors are reshaping their criteria for which companies and asset classes they invest in.
Financing Climate Change will bring together senior representatives from the entire financial ecosystem in an environment of honest and constructive dialogue. This virtual event organised by FinanceAsia will discuss how changing institutional investor sentiment will affect firms’ access to the capital markets, their cost of financing, and their future access to capital. It will determine practical implementation strategies for CFOs that can prepare them for more demanding capital market requirements. Policymakers, too, have a part to play in the discussion, and will set out future frameworks in which investors and issuers alike must operate. And workshops will be available for CFOs in the region to gain the knowledge needed to move toward a more sophisticated and greener way of operating.
Sophia Cheng, Chair and Rebecca Mikula-Wright, Executive Director, AIGCC will be speaking at the event.
