[Webinar] Overview of ESG and Sustainability-linked Derivatives
Sustainability-linked derivatives (SLDs) are a relatively new addition to the derivatives market. The first SLD executed in August 2019 and an increasing number of market participants are interested in these derivatives.
Though SLDs are not financial instruments that focus on the use of proceeds like green or sustainability-linked bonds, they play a key role in the transition to a more sustainable economy and in enhancing the flow of private capital to meet ESG objectives.

It is expected that participants have basic knowledge in derivatives and are encouraged to take “Introduction to Derivatives – Part 1 (2021)” and “Introduction to Derivatives – Part 2 (2021)” to enhance your basic knowledge in derivatives.
By the end of the course, the participants will have the basic understanding of the features of sustainability-linked derivatives and how they are different from green bonds, etc.
