16. June 2022 Impact Finance Lab: Navigating Emerging Market opportunities Geneva

Asia plays a crucial role if global net-zero goals are to be achieved by 2050. However, only a fraction of the world's clean and renewable energy funding goes to the region, leaving opportunities for investors to fill a trillions of dollars of funding gap.

In tackling the global challenge of climate change, investors can make the greatest positive impact by focusing on emerging market opportunities. How can investors and financiers move companies in emerging markets in this direction? Where are the opportunities and how big is the scope for expansion in these countries? We highlight the challenges for fund managers and selectors when designing green portfolios.

The event will be rounded off with a panel discussion.
