New York Climate Week Private Wealth Financing Sustainability

24 September 2020 - Online

10:00AM - 12:00PM


Private Wealth Financing Sustainability Webinar, as part of Climate Week NYC 2020


Guernsey’s business relationships with the US, and particularly New York, have been growing steadily in recent years. With the island and New York both being members of the United Nations’ Financial Centres for Sustainability (FC4S) network, it is fitting for both to come together for Climate Week NYC in September.

Over the course of the two sessions within this webinar, leading figures will discuss the role of private capital in funding sustainability and how green finance initiatives, such as Guernsey's Green Fund regime, help to meet climate change goals by routing global private capital to the cause of sustainability.

The first panel session is titled ‘What role does private capital have in mitigating climate change?’ Our panellists are Gillian Tett, Editor-at-Large, US at the Financial Times; Guy Hands, Chairman and Chief Investment Officer, Terra Firma; Anastasia Amoroso, Executive Director and Head of Investment Strategy, JP Morgan Private Bank, New York; and Dr Andy Sloan, Deputy Chief Executive, Strategy, at Guernsey Finance. Tim Hames, Senior Adviser at FTI Consulting and former Director-General of the BVCA, will act as moderator.

The second panel session has a Guernsey focus – How to route private capital to the cause of sustainability: lessons from Guernsey in structuring, services, and products. Dr Andy Sloan moderates the session with this panel: Annette Alexander, Partner at Carey Olsen; Frances Watson, Partner at Mourant; Rebecca Booth, Client Director, Carey and Emmalene Holden, Director at Albany Trustee Company.

This event is aimed at family offices, private wealth managers, private equity managers and their professional advisers.

Guernsey Green Finance, the sustainable finance initiative of the channel island of Guernsey, brings together the finance and public sector in support of climate action. Guernsey is a leading centre of private wealth and sustainable finance, launching the world's first regulatory regime for green funds, and is a member of the United Nations’ Finance Centres for Sustainability, the Network for Greening the Financial System, and the United Nation's Sustainable Insurance Forum.
