We are excited to offer a new course in Sustainable Finance and Impact Investing (FINE 6880) for Winter 2022. This course will be offered on Mondays from 11:30 – 2:30pm and will be taught by Professor Lilian Ng, Scotiabank Chair in International Finance, Schulich School of Business, York University.
Sustainable Finance has experienced rapid growth in recent years, as evidenced by the increase in new sustainability-investment products, new capital flows, and new initiatives developed by security market regulators, asset owners, corporations, and other market actors. Given the current demand for finance professionals with this expertise is on the rise, this course is important and timely for our master students.
This course covers diverse aspects of sustainable finance, including ESG measurement, socially responsible and impact investing, integrated reporting, and risk management, and provides rigorous training at the nexus of sustainability and financial management. Students will gain insights into sustainable and responsible decision-making in finance and how corporations and investors respond to market forces and regulations requiring them to invest responsibly.
