      In this lunch presentation Jane Ambachtsheer presents:

      • How the Paris agreement COP21 will impact the behavior of institutional investors
      • Why climate related risks should be a standard consideration and how these risks should be addressed

      Toby Buscombe highlights the impact of climate change on illiquid investments and  presents private market opportunities that will deliver strongly in the low-carbon and renewable energy field.
