Portfolio Risks: What Are You Ignoring?


Portfolio Risks: What Are You Ignoring?



Climate change, diversity, the future of work, and technology—do you know what risk exposure your portfolio has to material issues? Do you have municipal bonds for cities that have no plan against future superstorms? Do you have stock in companies that have been ignoring forced labor in their supply chain? Most investors have their own metrics to assess an asset's risk, or they utilize firms such as rating agencies to support their due diligence. But what might be some lurking risks that you have not assessed or priced? Panelists will discuss how environmental and social factors have been proven more material to creditworthiness and financial performance than previously expected. They will also share new technologies and processes for better understanding the real risks in your portfolios.
