Cass Business School is to bring together a group of key thinkers to explore the impact of systemic risk—such as climate change and inequality—on corporate governance.
Panellists including Paul Druckman, chair of the Corporate Reporting Council of the FRC; and Steve Waygood, chief responsible investment officer at Aviva Investors, will discuss an agenda of headline topics including best practice in governance in relation to systemic risk, including social and environmental issues.
In the first discussion, panellists will cover what regulators, policy makers and standard-setters can learn from companies that integrate systemic risk engagement in their strategies. They will also discuss the guidance and advice that can be provided to companies to help them adequately take account of systemic risk.
A second panel will look at investor strategies for considering systemic risk, including best practice for integrating systemic risk information into investment and engagement strategies.
Other panellists include Amélie de Montchalin, vice-president for Policy & Foresight, AXA Group; Gerhard Schnyder, reader in comparative management, King’s College London; Bruce Duguid, director, Hermes EOS; David Shammai, senior corporate governance specialist, APG; and Hugh Shields, senior accounting expert, Huawei.
The event has been organised by Cass Business School in partnership with purpose-driven law firm Frank Bold, and is supported by Board Agenda along with the University of Hertfordshire and MINES ParisTech.
