Sustainability and green agendas have now become the new buzzwords in both political and financial circles. However, are these expectations really realistic and can the financial sector be spearheading a fundamental change in addressing these fundamental and global challenges? The purpose of this conference “ A Green and Sustainable Financial Sector – can one be setting a new perspective?”, is really to understand how investors look beyond the hype and fundamentally assess what would be a realistic return expectation in this new market environment. Of equal importance, which will also be a focus area for this conference, is to get a better understanding of the actual risk profile when investing in this area. Furthermore, should this strategy shift be taking place by using technology or reporting standards as catalysator for change or is it more a question of changing the fundamental values, risks profiles and performance targets ingrained in the current players?
