Event description
Mary Leung, CFA (Head of Advocacy Asia Pacific - CFA Institute) on the recent climate report, plus insights from Lucas Kengmana, NZ Super

About this event

Join us for a light lunch at the Northern Club, Auckland, then hear from CFA Institute and NZ Super Fund.

Climate change presents a significant challenge to global markets and economies, posing additional costs and risks to all parts of society. Against this backdrop, the financial industry plays a pivotal role in allocating capital towards more sustainable activities.

In a recent report “Climate Change Analysis in the Investment Process” published by CFA Institute, we examined how climate risks can be incorporated into financial analysis and portfolio management. The investment profession needs to incorporate these new realities into its analysis in order to help efficiently allocate capital in a world where the effects of climate change are increasing. Issuers need to provide timely, relevant, consistent data on climate change in order to provide investors with decision useful information.

In this session, Mary Leung , CFA will present:

  • The findings of our research report, including what investors can do to prepare themselves
  • An overview of selected global reporting frameworks
  • Global regulatory outlook

Lucas Kengmana will talk about New Zealand Superfund’s belief that the impacts of climate change are not efficiently priced into investments and how the Fund looks to take advantage of this through their Climate Change Investment Strategy and Climate Change Analysis Change Valuation Framework.

Thanks to the sponsors of this event: The New Zealand Super Fund and CFA Institute Asia Pacific Research Exchange (ARX)
