Financial Services

The financial services sectors are the driving force of the economy, and although there have been large scale digitization and democratization through FinTech, there remains room for further innovation to bring in the un-and-underbanked sectors. Competition remains from the tech sector moving into this sector, as in all industries. The big questions also lie around the physical and transisional threats to their investment portfolios from environmental factors of GHG, biodiversity loss, and water scarcity. Here are some of the questions we are asking about the Financial Services sector.

We ask these 3 key questions when looking at the future of all industries.

  1. How will you intertwine the Triple Bottom Line of Planet, People, and Prosperity?

  2. Where are the Moments of Courage you need?

  3. What Key Questions will unlock new mental models?
We encourage you to push beyond ESG reporting, to harness exponential technologies and take Courageous Actions to Build Forward.

The Triple Bottom Line

  • How can we work with regulators to ensure that our fiduciary duty is fully aligned with a thriving planet?
  • How to make impact investing mainstream?
  • How to truly redefine “values” to include double materiality ESG valuation?
  • What would our portfolio look like with an ESG Discount Rate that makes tomorrow’s life as valued as today’s?
  • How to be the fintech that harnesses the potential of the unbanked?
  • How to be the servants of financial access and possibility to all people at the center of finance?
  • How to use the power of exponential technology to democratize finance for all sectors of the economy?
  • How to have decision makers reflect the society they are making decisions for?
  • How to price-in externalities of an old economic model hitting planetary boundaries?
  • How to see solving the SDGs as a list of the next big investment opportunities, beyond ESG risk assessment?
  • How to continue to democratize finance through fintech?
  • Is crypto-currency as a store of value, or is “currency” the wrong word?

The Courage Needed

To see Planet first as the New Path to Prosperity. The “Industrial Revolution” whether first, second, third, or forth is a limiting mental model for thriving in the future.

The Question to Ask

Where can you drive the building of the new economy, and where do you need to stop financing the old economy?
