Sustainable finance: What is the role of central banks in managing climate change?

Feb 06, 2019
Dr Paul Fisher
In most countries, central banks are the monopoly supplier of the narrow money base. Their principle responsibility is therefore ‘sound money’ which leads to various functions: controlling inflation, making sure the payments system works and doing what they can to maintain financial stability, sometimes including prudential supervision of banks. In small countries, they often deal with market conduct issues as well. Should they also have a role in managing climate change or in other aspects of sustainability?

Why would a telecom operator diversify into banking? Because it is not just banks that face disruption from new internet services – the network providers themselves face challenges, according to Ramon Fernandez. Orange is now due to launch Orange Bank Africa in Senegal.

We’re living longer but what does that mean for our finances?

Jan 16, 2019
Peter Hahn and Brian Wilkinson
In 2017 the UK population reached a new high of 66m and that’s set to grow – up to 72.9m by 2041, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS). As life expectancy increases so does the number of older people in our population – ONS data also tells us that one in every five people (18.2%) in 2017 were 65 or older and that’s projected to reach around one in every four people (24%) by 2037. So more of us will live longer and that means longer to enjoy retirement – which is good news, surely?
