Richard recently founded ResponsibleRisk Ltd to drive improvements in Sustainable Finance adoption and outcomes. His focus is evangelising a better understanding of the topic and solving ESG challenges with a focus on data and AI. Previously he worked in the Microsoft Global Banking Industry strategy team at Microsoft.
When Richard Peers looked to invest some money in sustainable funds anchored in good environmental practice, he found the offerings were mostly “20th century fund PDFs” rather than the dynamic solutions on offer in other industries. Drawing on two decades of experience in finance for Microsoft, Richard began investigating better solutions that draw on real-time data flows, IoT sensors, AI and blockchains. With more people looking to invest in sustainable funds, Richard is now setting out to help banks better understand what may well be the future of finance.
Richard will join Lafferty Group editorial director Ronan Lynch on stage to take about the tremendous possibilities ahead, with $90 trillion of funds waiting to move into businesses with good environmental and social governance.
