Investing with a splash!

Investing with a splash!

Navigate through ocean finance risks and opportunities by joining "Investing with a Splash”, a compelling webinar that will breeze you through the risks associated with ocean-related activities and the potential for untapped opportunities.

Financial institutions are increasingly exposed to risks when it comes to ocean-related investments, and often factoring risk into asset valuation adequately is challenging. An estimated $8.4 trillion of assets and revenues will be at stake throughout the next 15 years across sectors like fisheries, real estate, tourism, aquaculture, renewable energy, and shipping. This is why it is crucial today to explore how the financial sector can employ blended-finance solutions and engagement strategies to manage these risks.

The recently agreed upon UN High Seas Treaty has been celebrated as a breakthrough for ocean conservation, as it mandates the establishment of large-scale marine protected areas and biodiversity impact assessments. However, it's essential to consider that certain activities, such as fishing and deep-sea mining, remain regulated by separate entities and may not fall under the treaty's standards.

In this webinar, our esteemed panel of biodiversity and investment experts will delve into crucial topics, including: (i) Identifying hidden ocean-related risks faced by investors, (ii) Showcasing innovative blended finance solutions that unlock ocean investment potential, (iii) Collaborating with policymakers to ensure optimal portfolio protection in light of the yet-to-be-ratified High Seas Treaty.

While the primary focus will be on seafood and deep-sea mining, our speakers will also address other pertinent ocean-related issues that investors should take into account. Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights into the dynamic landscape of ocean finance.
