Lenses and Clocks: Financial stability and systemic risks

This paper seeks to apply sustainable finance and responsible investment principles to inform the financial stability debate. The paper urges financial policy-makers to integrate measures that promote the values of transparency, accountability, responsibility and trust as they seek to formulate and refine policies that deliver a more stable and resilient financial system to support globalized markets. The importance of a deeper understanding of broader systemic risk issues, improved governance and clearer fiduciary responsibility — all central to both the overhaul of our financial systems and to the principles and practices of sustainable finance and investment — is a focus of the paper.
