The world has experienced dramatic economic consequences with significant disruptions to the world’s financial system as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Simultaneously, the global crisis accelerated digital transformation and increased awareness of the importance of sustainability and risk management. At Telfer, we are working to create new insights and financial solutions that will help leaders apply responsible wealth management practices to move towards a more resilient economy and create a greener Canada for all.
In pursuit of our goal of emphasizing sustainability, we established the Centre for a Responsible Wealth Transition (CRWT) at Telfer to develop research insights, support and empower policymakers and organizations, and work towards a new and responsible economic model. In addition to creating resources to aid in the adoption of greener practices in Canadian businesses and industry, our programs include lessons on sustainable business practice including responsible investments, climate finance, risk intelligence, and emerging technologies.
