Sustainable Finance Week
09 June 2020 - 12 June 2020 - Guernsey
9:00AM - 9:00PM
Due to ongoing developments with COVID-19, we now expect that much of this conference will be delivered in a virtual format.
Building on Guernsey’s global leadership in sustainable finance, this week will bring together leading sustainable finance experts, private wealth and family office professionals and advisers from London, Zurich and Guernsey for discussion and dialogue on the issue of financing sustainability through private wealth portfolios.
Opening with a private reception at Government House hosted by the island’s Lt-Governor, the week will comprise a flagship conference, supported by a secondary conference, with various fringe events organised by Guernsey’s finance sector associations and firms.
The cornerstone conference will focus on green and sustainable finance and ESG investing, posing the central question of how private wealth can help drive the transition to a sustainable economy.
Panellists and speakers will include leading private wealth practitioners and sustainability experts from London and Switzerland, Guernsey professionals and wealthy private investors active in the sustainable arena.
A separate short conference focusing on philanthropy and family offices will take place in the afternoon of Thursday 11 June.
Confirmed fringe organisers already include the Guernsey Institute of Directors and the Chamber of Commerce. Regular updates will be posted to this webpage as more events are confirmed.
A pre-conference workshop run by the Centre for Sustainable Finance & Private Wealth, University of Zurich, will also take place on Tuesday 9 June.
