Sustainable finance has become a clear point of focus for many, if not all, financial market participants, investment funds and operational companies. Understanding what lies behind the E, the S and the G of ESG is key for asset managers and banks who wish to define a strategy fit for their organisation which, when successfully executed, effectively identifies opportunities while managing the potential risks linked to this emerging topic.

Arendt and Ripple Effect have partnered and combined their expertise to propose a four-module training programme to guide you through the latest regulatory changes supporting the development of sustainable finance and ESG, as well as through the practical challenges arising from the design and implementation of sustainable investment strategies. The training programme also provides participants with a clear understanding of what are sustainability risks and how to manage them while providing participants with the keys to monitoring and reporting on sustainability-related matters. This training programme is filled with important information on a growing industry from the experts themselves, giving you an insider look into the key ESG concepts, the importance of sustainable investing, and guidelines to sustainable finance.

Attendance of all 3 modules is recommended but not mandatory.
