Description

Overview:

The Executive Centre and Shared Value Project invite you to learn about how data shows that impact investing and green finance have gained popularity in the past few years in Asia, and major players such as BlackRock have pushed for responsible investing more broadly while others innovate on climate finance. How does this trend affect all financial services firms from buy-side to sell-side, even FinTech? What opportunities does it present and how do ESG, SRI and shared value thinking actually increase long-term return?

Come grab a drink and hear from regional experts representing financial services, ESG consulting and cross-sector organisations on why we cannot ignore this growing trend and how to embed shared value into your business model.
