MSCI ESG Seminar Series: A multi-asset class approach to climate risk (Vancouver)

With potential physical, technological, regulatory and social risks and opportunities, institutional investors in Canada and around the world are increasingly considering the impact of climate risk on portfolios, both today and in the future.

In part due to global initiatives such as the Montreal Pledge, the Portfolio Decarbonization Coalition,the Declaration of Institutional Investors on Climate-Related Financial Risks, and climate risk scenario analysis, many institutional investors have taken steps to better understand the long-term implications of climate change on their portfolios and the next steps in risk reduction, transfer or diversification away from carbon intensive assets.

In this MSCI ESG Research breakfast seminar series, we will discuss the current trends, common practices and strategies available to mitigate climate and transition risk to the low carbon economy globally. We will also consider  potential avenues to identify opportunities given the financial impact of climate risk, especially across asset classes.

Speakers will include economist and author Jeff Rubin, MSCI, and institutional investment professionals with practical knowledge and experience of ongoing climate change risk evaluation and mitigation strategies.
