But what role can they play in accelerating the flow of capital to build a more sustainable economy? In this training session, Nephila Advisors will explore the growing demand for risk transfer in markets, such as agriculture and renewables, and look ahead to its importance in meeting global net-zero targets.

Questions and comments will be moderated by Karen Shackleton of Pensions for Purpose.


To gain a greater understanding of the climate risk transfer market, the investment opportunity and its role in a sustainable economy.
