What we do
The Finance Dialogue was launched in the wake of the successful Paris agreement and its ambitious commitment to keeping the global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius (WB2C). In order to achieve this goal, global emissions need to peak by 2020.
The Finance Dialogue seeks to support this energy transition by catalysing a substantial redirection of capital into the low carbon economy. For this purpose we work with investors, financial experts, NGOs and philanthropists to deliver an integrated strategy.
Who we are
We are a team of highly motivated and driven professionals committed to our cause
Kelly Clark is the Director of the Finance Dialogue. In this capacity she works with investors, financial experts, NGOs and philanthropists to determine and deliver the Finance Dialogue’s strategy.
Previously, Kelly spent 10 years as a banker in the US, London and Hong Kong, culminating in her role as the Head of South East Asian Private Banking for UBS out of Hong Kong.
