Climate change has become a defining factor in companies’ long-term prospects, and we believe we are on the edge of a fundamental reshaping of finance. Investors are increasingly recognizing climate risk as investment risk.
Joining us is Geraldine Buckingham, Chair of BlackRock Asia Pacific and 2017 Forbes "40 under 40" titleholder. Geraldine will explore the increasing importance of investing against climate risks to sustain future growth.
This will draw from Geraldine's own experience in leading the way for investment decision-making algorithms at BlackRock and working with large global asset managers.
Join us on Thursday, 2 July from 12:30-2pm, with registration opening at 12pm.
Please ensure you adhere to the strict dress code of The China Club.
