TopQuants – the networking organisation for quants by quants, cordially invites you to its physical Spring (in summer) Event on

Energy transition, climate change and finance – Part Two

It has been a while since our last physical event, so we are very much looking forward to seeing you all again in person. The topic for our Spring Event (in Summer) continues where we left off at our last Spring Event – the interplay between the energy transition, climate change, and finance.

We have three speakers covering this topic from their own angles:

  • Kees Ouboter (ACTIAM)  ESG data – perfection is the enemy of good
  • Sarah Mellet & Frederic Doisy (EY) – Challenges and lessons learned from the 2022 ECB Climate Stress Test
  • Karim Bensaid (ABN AMRO) – ABN AMRO’s approach to the 2022 ECB Climate Stress Test

Whereas Kees Ouboter will share his insights on ESG data, which plays a crucial role in investment decisions and new regulations, both Sarah, Frederic and Karim will speak about the 2022 ECB Climate Stress Test. Sarah and Frederic will provide a walk-through of the Climate Stress Test, touch on its challenges, and discuss how climate stress testing should be also developed internally for banking institutions as part of their ICAAP. Karim will present the stress test methodology developed at ABN AMRO, and will look forward at how this methodology should be integrated into internal stress testing processes.

The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion during which you are welcome to ask questions. As usual, we will conclude the event with an informal networking session, drinks & bites.

If you are interested in finding out more, join us for the TopQuants event on the 7th of July. EY has been kind enough to host this event, it will take place at the EY Netherlands office in Amsterdam.

We hope to see you all on the 7th of July!

The TopQuants team.
