Welcome to the IA’s Investment & Capital Markets policy report for the second quarter of 2022. With this policy report we bring together the significant investment & capital markets activity over the past few months.
This quarter saw global markets shaken by high inflation and quantitative tightening from central banks, the slowdown in the Chinese economy from draconian lockdown measures, and the continuation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
This difficult environment also intensified the focus on global policy in sustainability and responsible investment, including global regulators’ efforts to prevent misleading claims, enhance disclosure and close the (ESG) data gap that continues to exit between market participants.
To explore all key developments in this space, including new challenges to transition to net zero by 2050, the IA held our fourth annual Sustainability & Responsible Investment Conference on 24th May.
