As a founding partner of Kepos Capital and former head of risk management at Goldman Sachs, Robert Litterman is recognized for his pioneering work in quantitative finance and sustainable investing. Litterman's insights promise to offer valuable perspectives on the role of carbon pricing in addressing climate change and its implications for financial markets and policy.

Carbon pricing has a pivotal role in addressing carbon emissions and climate change, and accurately pricing it is intimately linked to risk management. Additionally, Bob will introduce carbon-linked bonds, exploring how this financial instrument allows governments to signal their carbon pricing intentions and provides motivation for governments to act on their climate commitments.

Litterman's expertise underscores the urgency and complexity of integrating carbon pricing into the broader climate action agenda, offering invaluable guidance for policymakers, investors, and environmental advocates alike.

 

EDHEC discussants are Riccardo Rebonato, EDHEC Professor and EDHEC-Risk Climate Scientific Director, and Emmanuel Jurczenko, EDHEC Graduate Finance programmes Director.
