Sustainable Finance Performance

At the heart of sustainable finance are questions related to performance. This research theme seeks to explore empirically how sustainable finance is changing financial markets, altering risk preferences, and impacting the real economy.

Research topics include:

  • Firm-level ESG performance and its relationship with macro-economic performance
  • Changing risk preferences across the financial system as a result of the energy transition
  • Analysing performance of (un)sustainable investments in different asset classes using novel datasets
  • Measuring changes in sustainable finance practice across the financial system and what that means for performance
  • The efficacy of sustainable finance-related policies and regulations
