Newsletter Issue #3: September 2018
SFi has focused this month’s newsletter on climate change in recognition of several key climate change conferences taking place globally, including the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. A key topic of discussion at all of these climate gatherings will be the role of private capital in supporting climate change, with divestment from fossil fuels being a part of that discussion. Ahead of these upcoming conferences, we have prepared an original article focused on Divest-Invest, one strategy that investors can join to accelerate the clean energy transition.
In Hong Kong, where private banking and private wealth management assets account for 32% of the total assets under management (equating to US$1 trillion), we believe private investors have an important role to play.
We also bring you news of SFi’s activities, interesting local finance events, and a selection of online articles with a focus on climate change and divestment, to help you better understand how your assets can help solve climate problems.
