Integrating ESG Risks at Financial Institutions


In-person and Virtual Participation Available

The integration and measurement of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) risks are high on the agenda of regulators and financial institutions worldwide. Integrating these risks provides both challenges and opportunities. It is based on the previously implemented regulatory requirements from the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework and potentially additional regulatory requirements. 

The Swiss regulator is strongly committed to the recommendations of the Network for Greening the Financial System (NGFS). Supervisory reviews currently being performed at financial firms demonstrate that requirements for ESG frameworks will go beyond EU regulations.

 In this presentation we will begin by exploring some of the global regulatory frameworks amid the growing scrutiny of ESG. We will address the guidance of the U.S. SEC, the ISSB, and the EU. We will also cover the emerging developments in regulatory expectations and show some of the emerging trends and developments for addressing and managing these risks in the Swiss market including:

•Scenario definitions & analyses

•Dynamic balance sheet modeling

•Expected loss modeling
