Navigating the Impact of Climate Change on Financial Markets

Navigating the Impact of Climate Change on Financial Markets
PRMIA Boston is pleased to invite you to a virtual panel highlighting the impact of climate change on global financial markets.   A group of leading experts will explore the impact of climate change across different asset classes, along with ways that leading investment organizations are beginning to implement models designed to both manage risk and capitalize on new investment opportunities. Our expert panel will explore how financial markets have priced in climate change, along with financial risks related to both physical risk factors like extreme weather and net-zero emissions targets.  The group will also discuss the types of data, analytics and information that is critical for risk managers to develop a framework to address climate risk in their organization.
