Can FinTech support the transition to sustainable finance? A joint LIBF/CSFI discussion with Chris McHugh, Martina Macpherson, Oliver Marchand and Vincent Gilles
Why you should watch: A stellar line-up to discuss a crucial question: Can FinTech drive improvements in sustainability? And, if so, how? How can banks and investors use FinTech to embed and better understand sustainability? What does FinTech offer, for instance, in the area of alternative data – e.g., from satellite imagery? How can it help deal with the inherent complexity of environmental data? Can it address the taxonomy issue? And can it help ordinary investors make investment decisions that reflect their own values? Four key speakers share their thoughts.

What is Sustainable Finance?
Basically a financial market is a machine that takes money from
investors and distributes it to entrepreneurs that need money for their businesses. Those businesses promise a return to the investors. Depending on the business an investment comes with a certain risk. The risk and return profile of a business usually helps investors to
choose where to invest. Sustainable finance takes a look beyond the simple numbers of risk and return: It looks at the impact of the investment. Does the investment have a negative effect on environmental, social or governance aspects?
