Systems Finance for Sustainable Development

Wednesday, May 8, 2024
11:50 AM - 12:30 PM PDT

Inclusive and regenerative economic growth requires new business models, innovative technologies, and incentives for behavioral changes that support the transition to a circular economy. Innovative finance generates economic instruments that are evolving in public and private debt and equity markets. This panel will cover both macroeconomics and macro-financial challenges for central banks, regulators, and financial supervisors in the context of tightened monetary policy. Our panelists will focus on the growing body of evidence for how financial practitioners are shaping markets by building new, resilient capital structures to finance energy, climate, and growth transitions through new capital market solutions. Such solutions include structured credit, blended finance, and new trading platforms. The question to address: How do these innovative finance practices accelerate growth and long-term value creation?
