ESG Risk Deep Dive

The Inaugural ESG Risk Across the 3 Lines of Defence Deep Dive

Financial institutions are recognising the need to factor ESG Risk into their risk management activities across all 3 lines of defence. What is expected from the regulators and what does good governance look like? Who should own ESG Risk? How does ESG Risk fit into existing risk frameworks and how can banks ensure clients are being treated fairly and there is appropriate transparency etc?

The in-depth analysis into specific topics ensured high quality interaction between delegates through content rich panel discussions, keynote addresses, and a series of carefully managed private interactive discussions. 

In addition, delegates were able to view the profiles of other attendees ahead the event, and network both pre- and post-event. Delegates were also able to access content from leading technology vendors and consultants. Any panel discussion content missed on the days of the event are available on-demand for seven days afterwards. The entire series of Deep Dives are CPD certified, so attendees can demonstrate professional development.
