Hamish has worked on investment and risk management projects around the world, for multilateral lenders and private companies. He has contributed to specialist financial communications projects in emerging markets. As a Legal Consultant with ClientEarth, Hamish uses legal tools to bring about better investment risk management and disclosure by pension funds and other asset owners.
Hamish believes that long-term value creation and prudent risk management go hand in hand. Both require a nuanced understanding of the policy, investment, and environmental risks and opportunities associated with climate change, alongside other non-traditional material financial factors. Prior to supporting ClientEarth's work, Hamish examined legal risk management in a number of contexts including as a consultant to the World Bank, a supply chain due diligence expert in the mining sector, and as a factory inspector in China.
I believe that the NSFM is an ideal forum for discussion and preparation for action on new approaches to non-traditional financial risk management for long-term prosperity.
