BMO and Bloomberg partner to host Sustainable Finance Week

BMO is proud to be the exclusive Canadian sponsor of the upcoming Bloomberg Sustainable Finance Week (SFW), which runs from December 2 to 6.

The event brings together market-moving players across the world to discuss emerging trends and visionary ideas for this growing industry. In the last 10 years alone, sustainable assets under management grew over 500 per cent. At this rate of growth, we’ll see $40 trillion in-market by 2020, with the next $10 trillion shaping the defining standards and practices for business and the markets for decades to come.

Our partnership with Bloomberg on SFW is another way we’re acting on our Bold Commitment to a sustainable future for all, including the work we already do to support clients in the pursuit of sustainable objectives and environmental outcomes that support the transition to a lower carbon economy.

As part of the week, Dan Barclay, Group Head and CEO, BMO Capital Markets will be kicking off the first Canadian Sustainable Investment Forum on December 4, which will also include a fireside chat with BMO’s Kristi Mitchem, CEO, BMO Global Asset Management.
