One Planet Financial Chapter - ESG as a Disruptor to the Financial Sector (27 May 2021)
Risk Insights' ESG Team aims to make the planet a better place with Conscious Financial Leadership.
As we know, ESG related sustainable assets hit a record USD 1.7 trillion in 2020 and will likely reach up to USD 30 trillion in the next few years. ESG related funds have largely outperformed in recent downturn and current conditions in 2020.
The Risk Insights Team, alongside our special guest speakers Mr Jim Riordan, Executive Committee member from the World Economic Forum, Mr Marc Lubner the CEO of Afrika Tikkun, and Dr Filipe Morais, Professor of Governance from the Henley Business School in the UK, held a successful event that demonstrated how to navigate within South Africa’s financial sector on what matters in ESG. The Risk Insights professional team provided the cadence of ESG GPS, the first machine learning rating model built on the African continent and showcased our ESG GPS Index (RISI), a disrupter in the South African investment world created to assist in deepening of capital markets.
One Planet: Financial Chapter was attended by top professionals and experts from across the country. ESG GPS is a revolutionary rating tool made by Africans, for Africa and the world. As sustainability is taking the world by storm, ESG GPS will help you and your company to navigate through these changes and to make the right investment decisions.
