Andrew Karolyi: The State of Research on Climate Finance: An Inconvenient Void

Professor Karolyi will give a lecture that outlines recent research insights on the new topic of climate finance. The research asks whether and how climate change and global warming may be impacting financial markets, from how assets are priced to how corporate financial decisions are made. The lecture will emphasize that this line of inquiry is still very new and there is much work ahead. He will share ideas on what new questions yet need to be answered.
