    The Geneva Finance Research Institute, the Institute for Environmental Sciences of the University of Geneva and Sustainable Finance Geneva are pleased to announce the 2nd Geneva Summit on Sustainable Finance. We invite submissions of papers addressing the conference theme “Sustainable Finance, quo vadis?” and in particular, the following issues: - Theoretical models of sustainable and responsible investment. - Implications of sustainable development for strategic asset allocation and the design of investment strategies. - Implications of sustainability factors for financial performance in asset classes beyond listed equities (e.g., fixed income, private equity, real estate). - Advances in quantifying non-financial investment impact and financial materiality of environmental and social externalities (e.g., natural resource depletion, ecosystem degradation, climate change, inequality, human rights). - Aligning and integrating ESG analysis with financial analysis and fiduciary responsibility. - Advances in risk management, product- and security design favoring the financing of sustainable development (carbon emissions trading, social impact bonds, green bonds, insurance, micro-insurance/finance). Papers will be reviewed by a scientific committee, which includes, among others, Tim Cadman (University of Southern Queensland), Marc Chesney (University of Zurich), Jeroen Derwall (Maastricht University), Caroline Flammer (University of Western Ontario), Rajna Gibson Brandon (University of Geneva), Nadja K.
