Event Details



Please join us for our next monthly meeting on October 30th where we will discuss climate risk facing municipalities and how institutional investors are responding.


In just the last three years, extreme weather events have caused hundreds of billions of dollars in damages in American metropolitan areas.  Following the recent and devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Maria on Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico respectively, institutional investors are faced with questions about how climate related disasters may impact their portfolios – across municipal bonds, real estate, and infrastructure. 


In a panel format, our speakers will highlight how cities are managing, using, and reporting their climate data to address climate change and transition to a low carbon economy as well as how climate risk to cities is being taken into account (or not) by the institutional investor community. 


Carolyn Roose will moderate a panel conversation with two special guests: 


Claire Ferguson, Senior Manager, Financing Sustainable Cities Initiative, C40 Cities Climate Leadership

Tiphany Lee-Allen, Assistant Vice President, Moody's Investors Service


We are particularly excited for this meeting, our first as the new WISE-NYC Chapter Leaders, and hope to see you there. 


Best regards,
Carolyn Roose, Katie Walsh, Simone Andrews
WISE-NYC Chapter Leaders

Women Investing for a Sustainable Economy (WISE) is a community of women contributing to the ESG* investment industry with the purpose of connecting, deepening relationships, learning and sharing expertise. Our collective aspiration is to lead ESG investing into the mainstream and to do it with fun and camaraderie. WISE members commit to "take the call" -- ready and willing to support one another.


Founded in February 2012 by Lori Choi, Lily S. Trager and Eva Zlotnicka, WISE is based in New York City, with local chapters in BostonWashington DC, San FranciscoToronto and London. Each chapter is run by committed Chapters Leaders and depends upon community members to host and organize monthly gatherings in homes, offices and sometimes public spaces.  Additional events are planned on an ad-hoc basis around specific interests and themes or to feature external speakers, such as mentors and industry leaders. WISE currently includes over 800 contributing members representing ESG catalysts across the investment ecosystem. This includes public and private asset managers, wealth managers, investment consultants, investors, analysts, data providers, NGOs, and more.


The WISE-NYC Chapter is proudly led by Carolyn Roose, Katie Walsh, and Simone Andrews. You can reach the WISE-NYC Chapter Leaders at wisenycchapterleaders (at) gmail (dot) com. Please email wisefounders (at) gmail (dot) com with your ideas on how to further develop our community.


*We use the term ESG as a way to represent environmental, social and governance related investing approaches including: sustainable, responsible, impact, mission-related and beyond.
