The economic disruption caused by Covid-19 has led to calls to reset the global economy along fairer and more environmental lines. Governments are being challenged to direct their record stimulus funds towards projects and investments that are more sustainable and there has been a corresponding boom in more socially responsible investing. As environmental, social and governance factors increasingly shape the strategies of many investors, a new ecosystem is blossoming to meet novel and changing demands.
OMFIF and CME Group are convening a panel to examine the new landscape following the pandemic. The discussion will explore the macroeconomic background, commodity drivers and risk management, booming exchange-traded funds, derivative solutions for hedging and portfolio diversification and how investors can find solutions to align with their values.
