Description

Andrew Siwo – Director of Sustainable Investments and Climate Solutions, New York State Common Retirement Fund

Among secular trends that possess inherent investment risks and opportunities is climate change. Modern fiduciaries are increasingly expected to position investment assets to address emerging risks and opportunities, particularly physical and transition risks associated with climate change that are identified threats to investment assets. Our keynote address speaker will share how New York State Common Retirement Fund intends to protect its nearly $250 billion fund and mitigate exposure to carbon intensive assets as well as identify value enhancing investment opportunities.
