About this event

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) estimates that US$200 Billion green investment is needed in ASEAN per year till 2030.

Investors have become increasingly aware of the need to look after our planet - before it is too late. This has caused the popularity of sustainable investing to grow exponentially over the past few years. With new changes making green financing even more attractive than before, what are the new windows of opportunities that have opened for you?

In this fireside chat, iSTOX invites Chia Tek Yew, Chairman of the Sustainability Committee at the Singapore Fintech Association and Partner at Oliver Wyman. He will share valuable insights on green financing trends and the future of sustainability.

Here is a sneak peek of the questions to be covered:

  • What are green bonds and green loans?
  • What are the biggest obstacles and gaps from accelerating green financing and projects around the world?
  • The Sustainable Bond Grant Scheme encourages green and sustainability-linked initiatives in Singapore. How can investors seize these opportunities?
