FINANCIAL INNOVATION FOR GLOBAL CHALLENGES

Convinced that the finance of tomorrow needs preparing today, Sustainable Finance Geneva (SFG) is promotes sustainable finance through a book highlighting 60 financial innovations that address 10 global challenges.

Today, the financial sector is evolving quickly and society faces major challenges, many of them disruptive on a global level. Similarly, investors’ profiles is changing with the growth of “millennials”.

Whether we are talking about climate change, digitalization, migration or fast-changing social needs, our sector responded to each of these challenges innovatively.

Some of these 60 or so innovations channel capital to concrete projects aiming to produce positive social or environmental impacts such as green bonds, social impact bonds and products that improve farmers’ access to land. Other innovations – such as crowdfunding, mobile banking and blockchain – are reshaping the financial industry to make it more accessible and inclusive. Some speak to the public, from the individual to the pension fund, while others are intended to specialized audiences.

The question today is no longer whether to invest in this industry, but how. And we believe Geneva possesses all the expertise necessary to guide investors.
