Financial technology, or fintech, is playing an increasing role in the management of assets and mobilization of capital. Robo-advisers are forecasted to manage $1.26 trillion in assets by 2023, and have managed around $500 billion as of 2019. Fintech is attracting attention from nearly all markets and could help realign the financial system towards sustainable development. CalCEF Innovations, now known as New Energy Nexus, will publish a scoping report on the current state of climate fintech solutions, opportunities and barriers; fintech accelerator programs; and fintech-engaged corporate stakeholders in Europe, China, and the United States.
