TUESDAY, MARCH 10TH, 2020: DAY ONE – ANTICIPATING AND MANAGING RISK

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020


9:00 AM KEYNOTE PANEL: Will ESG be a Bigger, More Integrated Aspect of EMFI?

Is ESG a product, a process, or a marketing gimmick?  Wealth managers and family offices are increasingly prioritizing it, and it is expected by a rising generation of Millennials – but it is viewed very differently within EMs themselves, which want to use their resources for growth.  Any future ESG outreach must emphasize community engagement and avoid a patronizing approach. 

•Recognize when CEOs in Asia and elsewhere see ESG as unimportant
•Weigh different philosophies for ESG – whether rewarding the best or improving the worst
•Grapple over whether green bonds are a form of risk management and less volatile than others
•Confront the vulnerability of EM economies to climate change
