External - The “Great Reset”: Making Finance Work for an Inclusive and Resilient Future

Thursday, August 20th 2020
9:00 AM to 10:30 AM
Webinar, BC

The Victoria Forum is pleased to invite you to join the conversation with a panel of experts who will discuss what these calls mean for the financial sector and the opportunity they present to strengthen the resilience of the global financial system, and to support a more sustainable and inclusive growth while managing systemic risks. From financial institutions, to investors to central banks and regulators, the types of recovery responses adopted now to fight the short term effects of the pandemic have the potential to either accelerate or delay countries transition to a more sustainable, inclusive and resilient future.

In this webinar, we will attempt to address following questions:

  1. What does a “Great Reset” mean for various financial sector participants, including institutions, markets, central banks and other actors, in Canada and Globally?
  2. How can the financial sector contribute to a greener and smarter growth while reducing inequalities and building more resilient economies?
  3. What will it mean in practice for the corporate sector to focus on all stakeholders (and not solely on financial returns)?
  4. How can we build better collaboration between public and private finance to support and accelerate the transition to a sustainable future?
