The global pandemic has exposed existing vulnerabilities and highlighted the need for focused and immediate action. Customers expect their financial institutions to stand for more than just profits. And they recognize that financial services firms have significant influence over how the world rebuilds. They are watching carefully to see if they use that power to help societies and economies build back better.
In the articles below we explore how financial institutions can help solve some of the most challenging issues of our times through their skills and resources to deliver on the needs of society. We look at strategies and innovations to address climate change and combat financial inequality and human rights violations, while at the same time highlighting the positive impact of putting diversity, equity and inclusion at the heart of their strategy. To discuss topics raised, please contact the authors or your local KPMG office and reference, Frontiers in Finance – Resilient and relevant in the new reality.
