A Random Walk into Climate Disaster

A Random Walk into Climate Disaster
Thought Leadership Webinar: Complimentary to the PRMIA network! The capital markets theories of the 1950s and 1960s are based on assumptions that will render them obsolete as the shift towards a low carbon economy is gathering momentum. This has profound consequences for how portfolios are constructed, how companies are valued, the changing role of risk managers, and the type of data they need to inform decisions. This webinar aims to address the question, "What is really going on here?"

About This Webinar

 

The capital markets theories of the 1950s and 1960s are based on assumptions that will render them obsolete as the shift towards a low carbon economy is gathering momentum. The underlying assumptions are based on risk data and information that is largely based on historical timeseries. These relationships of the past will become increasingly irrelevant and basing decisions on them increasingly unrepresentative.

We are in the early stages of a fundamental re-engineering of the financial system. How can risk managers adapt in response to these changes? An "adaptive management" approach promotes continuous learning and flexible project design. An adaptive plan specifies actions to be taken immediately to be prepared for the near future and actions to be taken now to keep options open to adapt if needed in the future.

Climate risk is an evolving, transformative issue that will require changing the fundamental attributes of the organization and ultimately will redefine the core purpose of the organization. That change may start with the Risk Manager.
