Second Annual Volatility and Risk Institute Conference, "A Financial Risk Framework For Climate Change: Portfolio Construction, Stress Testing, and Risk Transfer,"

The conference is free and open to the public, but please note that you must register in advance.

Conference Theme
Climate risks are forcing repricing of financial assets. This conference will seek to address and possibly answer several questions that arise from those changes:
• What are the implications for portfolio construction and investment management?
• What risks can be detected by climate stress tests of financial institutions?
• What is the role for disclosure regulation?
• Can we launch financial instruments and markets in which to trade them to facilitate price discovery and risk transfer?
• Are these changes in asset prices sufficient to internalize the externalities of GHG emissions and lead us to net zero emissions? If not, what policy actions are needed or possible?
