14 March 2022 — Daniela GHETU
Climate change is no longer solely a societal and geopolitical concern - it reaches the very heart of the investment industry. CFA Society Romania is inviting on 15 March, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (Bucharest time) to a special online evening dedicated to investing in the changing world.

The 16th Edition of the CFA Forecast Dinner 2022 is organized under the titles "Investing in a Changing World - Energy Transition". The event will be broadcasted on www.zf.ro and the Facebook account Ziarul Financiar.

ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) factors start to take a toll on investment decisions, CFA Romania's experts say emphasizing that investment managers all over the world become increasingly wary of their role in modeling responsible behavior of listed companies.

Moreover, the current energy crisis acts as a wake-up call for Romania and Europe, which are increasingly dependent on gas suppliers from outside the EU, but energy transition plans are underway. Higher energy prices are affecting consumers and industry, leading to a surge in inflation and significant changes in the money markets.
