ESG & Sustainable Finance
LIVE ONLINE COURSE
Commences: 4 – 21 April 2022

Overview

There is no question the future of financial services is Sustainable Finance. Be it investment, lending and mortgages, be it private equity and trade finance – no asset class out there is untouched of questions such as: “what is the carbon intensity of this investment?”, “what is the financial climate risk in financing this project?”, or “how can we create ESG-linked products for our customers?”. Both customers and regulators demand financial institutions to report on ESG (environmental, social and governmental) indicators and analysis. We are here to help you navigate the ESG jungle!

You will learn how ESG and Sustainable Finance affects your business from a regulatory and a customer viewpoint. Understand the strategic implications of ESG and Sustainable Finance on the financial industry and learn how technology offers competitive advantages in transforming into a sustainability-driven organisation. Regardless of your role this course will teach you the business requirements on Sustainable Finance, giving you the confidence to lead meaningful conversations across your business.
