“Financial education is needed at various levels: basic financial education, investor education, but also education in sustainable finance," stated Claude Marx, Director General of the CSSF, during the event.
Education for all
Head of Sustainable Finance at LuxSE, Laetitia Hamon, was also on hand during the ceremony where she presented a short lecture on the Sustainable Finance terminologies used in the LGX Academy curriculum.
In May this year, the LGX Academy was launched to strengthen sustainable finance education and increase financial professionals and students’ knowledge of sustainable finance products, standards and labels as well as applicable regulation and current market practices. The launch of the LGX DataHub followed in September, offering structured sustainability data on Green, Social and Sustainability Bonds. The LGX DataHub enables investors to compare the impact of different securities, and thereby make more informed investment decisions.
