ESG Lending and Investing

Develop your knowledge of sustainable financing and ESG principles for investing

ESG investing is constantly growing as a discussion topic for financial institutions across the world, as the core values become increasingly important for investors and asset managers alike.

This course will take on a new format as we welcome subject-matter expert, Monica Rebreneau, working in conjunction to present a refreshed agenda. Monica will be accompanied on each session with a variety of guest speakers from institutes such as MUFG and HSBC to give an extensive insight into how to utilise data and define materiality, and developments in ESG ratings and scorings.

Participants will explore new EU regulations and accords, as well as how to achieve Net-Zero and carbon neutral portfolios. This course will consider how to approach climate risk from an E,S and G standpoint as well as identify potential key areas of growth in the ESG market.
