Elevate City Papers are a world-first initiative, created to amplify the voice and expertise of women leaders, in Financial Services.
Analysis commissioned by the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership, at King’s College London found that:
- men make up 86% of people quoted as experts in business/finance coverage;
- and that 77% of people quoted as experts in online news articles by the main UK news outlets are men.
Our Papers summarise the knowledge and expertise shared by leaders, under Chatham House Rule at Elevate City events, to contribute to strategic discussion and debate on topics within the financial services industry, and more broadly.

Climate Change Risk
For financial services firms, the risks associated with climate change are accelerating at breakneck speed, even while the industry continues to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact, some theories around the origin of the pandemic connect it directly to ecological issues, such as the encroachment of human habitation on wildlife areas.
Around the globe, the pressure from customers, regulators, shareholders, employees and other stakeholders such as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to tackle climate change within the financial services industry has never been higher.
