Sustainable Finance (foundation)

4 hour(s)

Objectives

The module Sustainable Finance (Foundation) is provided by Forethix Academy.
It is quite clear today for actors of the financial sector that they need to define and show how they create value to society, but even beyond, how they contribute to securing legitimacy and trust in society and help to support the financing of the evolving policy environment.

The global momentum around Sustainable Finance is driven by:

  • increased recognition in the financial community that ESG factors play a material role
  • increasing legal requirements at EU level to pro­tect the long-term interests of investors, benefi­ciaries and the wider financial system
  • peer-pressure rising from market competition fostering the need to enlarge the product offering
  • stakeholders becoming increasingly demanding regarding transparency about where and how their money is invested
  • risk-management approach to avoid value-de­stroying reputational risks.

The course is designed for banks, asset managers, insurance companies and other relevant institutions wishing to embrace sustainability into their business models.
The course articulates around an innovative teaching style that combines theory and practical business case studies allowing candidates to concretely put into practice the main concepts and definitions learned.

Provide professionals working in the financialsector with fundamental knowledge on sustainable finance.
