The role of risk

Real-time forward-looking measurement of climate change and nature loss to address transitional and physical risk

What are the issues and opportunities for risk management working with alternative data to inform credit decisions? How can these decisions be quantified against physical and transition risk?


This co-creation workshop will detail how alternative data from sources such as satellites and sensors can augment traditional risk systems, with real-time forward looking data to provide insights to the future of sustainable financing.

 

$47 trillion of capital has been pledged to sustainable finance and supporting outcomes aligned to sustainability and impact goals, such as the UN SDGs.


This huge volume of capital is only trickling from behind a dam created by uncertainty from lack of data, taxonomies, schemas, reporting and products, robust enough to satisfy the risk register of financial institutions. The result is a lack of confidence about viable options for investing in sustainable initiatives.


Finextra Research and ResponsibleRisk will be running a thought-provoking series of editorial, research and experiential events to bring banking and technology ecosystems together and to collaborate on enabling this wave of change.

Problem statement:

• The absence of a broad universe of asset data, aligned by location and by owner, prevents proper pricing of ESG risk.
• With your input expert providers of Spatial, Risk and disclosure data from the advisory board and speakers system will identify the issues and opportunities of moving large scale data models to serve the needs of FSI analysts, looking at asset needs and data schemas to workshop the design of an Exchange/Marketplace to gather asset data.
