When risk becomes the key to success.

In a macroeconomic scenario dominated by market volatility, pervasive technological innovation and geopolitical risks, the sustainability of the financial sector is a “crucial” enabler of the economic growth as undertakings are long term investors, lenders, insurers, … In this context, the important commitment of the EU Sustainable Finance Plan enabled the development of several regulations and ESAs guidelines aimed at:

  • re-orienting capital flows towards sustainable investments,
  • strengthening the Risk Management Framework considering also ESG factors
  • promoting transparency and a forward-looking view of financial and economic activities
