The shift to ESG (Environmental Social and Governance) priorities at the European level (through the EU Green Deal) and at the global level (through the UN’s sustainability strategy) is a reality that directly affects the financial services industry through the promotion of sustainable or green finance among other.
As a result, having sound knowledge on environmental, social and governance factors is becoming key in successful integrated business and investment management. Today, fund managers are constantly on investors’ radar screens and want to be seen responding to a widening range of client concerns. These concerns are driven by rising awareness of the dangers of climate change, natural resource depletion and economic sustainability that are all reflected in a rapidly evolving regulatory framework (at least for EU countries).
Human and societal issues include better education, improved living standards and other issues broadly grouped under social responsibility or inequality. Industry wide ESG metrics, benchmarks and ratings as well as regulatory considerations have become part of the investment decision-making process.
The aim of the certificate is to develop understanding in what is meant by sustainable finance, products and services, and to help people play a leading role in developing a sustainable banking and financial services industry with a renewed sense of social purpose.
By the end of the programme, participants will able to:
Introducing ESG – Towards a Green and Sustainable Economy
Green Finance and Risk Management
Green Bonds and Asset-Backed Securities, Equity Markets and Investment Funds, and Insurance
ESG Analysis, Valuation, Integrated Portfolio Construction and Management

After completing her bachelor studies in Law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, she obtained her LL.M. in Public International Law, with a specialisation in International Environmental and Energy Law, from the University of Oslo, Norway.

Her contribution to sustainable and climate finance is more evident in the advancement of research and in advising on these two prominent domains.
The course is designed to deliver knowledge, initially by offering a theoretical assessment of ESG and Sustainable Finance, and then by adopting a more practical perspective that seeks to illustrate the challenges and prospects of sustainable and green finance.
The teaching methodology rests on an interactive approach that will seek to engage the participants and accordingly place emphasis on those aspects/issues discussed that are deemed to have the greatest value for the participants. A short quiz will be offered at the end of the seminar.
