Finance for Tomorrow is a partner of the Financial Risks International Forum !
Climate change is one of the key challenges of our time. Addressing climate change and transitioning the world’s economy to a low-carbon path will require support from the financial sector through energy and infrastructure investments, the creation of new financial products and insurance solutions. It will also require the development of new models to assess the interactions between climate and the economy, the measurement of climate physical / transition risk and its incorporation into asset prices, the assessment of investors’ attitudes and beliefs towards these risks. Finally, financial institutions are interconnected, and climate change is posing a serious threat to financial stability. Central banks and regulators are requesting financial institutions to disclose their climate risk exposure and have started to design scenarios for climate stress tests.
This upcoming 15th Financial Risks International Forum aims to highlight the methodological and regulatory challenges raised by the ongoing developments in financial technologies.
Among speakers for the 2022 edition are:
- Stefano GIGLIO, Professor of Finance at Yale School of Management.
- Irene MONASTEROLO, Professor of Climate Finance at EDHEC Business School and EDHEC-Risk Institute.
- Lucian TAYLOR, Professor of Finance, Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.

“Data Gaps and Needs for Sustainable Finance Research”.
