Working to Bridge the Financing Gap in Developing Economies
16:00 EST
 

Join Paul Ellis, Sustainable Finance Podcast, Martina Macpherson, Moody's and others on this webinar.

When small businesses in developing economies need additional capital to continue growing, they typically face a finance gap. Martina Macpherson of Moody's Corp ESG Solutions Group, Jason Mitchell of Man Group, and Charulata Singal of United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) discuss how investors in developing economies are working with data analytics firms and asset managers to address both the risk and the many opportunities for growth in these economies and for companies with exposure to local entities through their value and supply chains. When UNCDF engages with local enterprises in frontier markets, it builds depth into these markets and nurtures more bankable deal flow, ultimately acting like a project preparatory facility for Development Finance Institutions (DFI) and other commercial investors. Developing these kinds of cross-sector collaborations and public-private partnerships are also fundamental for establishing environmental and social resilience and long term prosperity in line with Agenda 2030.

Paul Hewitt from Vigeo Eiris, an affiliate of Moody’s will discuss the increasing the focus on the ‘S’ within ESG.

Across the globe, countries are beginning to restore their economies to a pre Covid-19 state of normality. As governments and corporations implement recovery strategies, they must continue to prioritise social and environmental issues to “build back better”.

Companies will need to look beyond typical strategies such as CSR and ESG. It will become paramount to identify their core impacts, both social and environmental, and decide on the operational and strategic shifts that make the biggest impact on all stakeholders. None of this will be easy, especially with the unpredictable and challenging times we face in 2020. Just how can companies balance both profit and purpose?

Paul Hewitt of Vigeo Eiris, an affiliate of Moody's, will join a Panel Discussion: Increasing the focus on the ‘S’ within ESG on the 1st October 2020.

xAI Conference & Book Launch
 

This programme will showcase the key insights of The AI Book – the first globally crowdsourced guidebook for AI in finance - featuring many of the Book’s authors plus guest speakers on the key issues in increasing explainability of AI in finance

Artificial Intelligence is poised to disrupt lives, businesses, economies and even the international geopolitical order. As such, it has never been more important to have a clear understanding of what AI is and the ramifications of its mass adoption, particularly in the financial services sector.

But what is explainable AI and how will it impact financial services? What are the ethical, legal and regulatory issues? Who are the major players in the industry and what lies over the horizon?  The xAI Conference aims to answer these questions and tackle this complex and often intimidating topic.

This programme will showcase the key insights of The AI Book – the first globally crowdsourced guidebook for AI in finance - featuring many of the Book’s expert authors plus guest speakers on the key issues in increasing explainability of AI in financial services.

Martina Macpherson, Senior Vice President - Strategic Partnerships and Engagement, will present a keynote speech at The AI Book Launch event on the 5th of November, before joining the global industry experts and influencers at the 2020 xAI Conference on the 6th of November for a deep dive into the current capabilities and future possibilities of AI for financial services.
