"I see the opportunity for the private sector to overcome the strong headwinds of regulatory, economic, environmental and social uncertainty through a focus on culture in shaping accountability and performance and evolving approaches across strategy, risk and execution. This is with particular regards to non-financial drivers like climate, indigenous affairs, modern slavery and pandemic recovery. Globally the opportunity to drive new sources of value, innovation and positive impact have never been greater. The financial services industry is an important enabler of this change."
