[Webinar] Navigating Climate Risk for Asset Managers
Managing climate risk, together with the ability to measure and disclose, has become a critical aspect for investment managers. Given the potential impact of physical and transitional climate-related risks on many portfolios and businesses, certain climate change assessments and reporting standards are increasingly being codified as regulatory requirements. In Hong Kong, Securities and Futures Commission (‘SFC’) have proposed to amend the Fund Manager Code of Conduct (‘FMCC’) requiring climate-related risks to be considered by fund managers. In this webinar, speaker will discuss why climate-related financial risks are taking centre stage globally and locally and the growing legal and regulatory climate disclosure requirements around the world.
By the end of this webinar, participants will understand:
- how climate-related risks regulations will impact their businesses;
- what climate-related financial risks encompass; and
- practical considerations for how asset managers can prepare for climate disclosure.
- Updates of climate-related policy and regulatory developments in the APAC region and the potential impact on asset management;
- Spotlight on Hong Kong developments including the SFC's proposals to amend the FMCC requiring climate-related risks to be considered by fund managers; and
- How asset managers can integrate climate-risk factors into their portfolios
