Each week Emerging Markets ESG publishes an interview entitled, “Five Questions about SRI.” The interview features a practitioner’s insights about SRI in emerging markets and through Emerging Markets ESG shares this expertise with a wide global audience. The goals of Five Questions about SRI are fourfold:
To reflect on what SRI in emerging markets means to practitioners; To collect a catalogue of examples of SRI in practice in emerging markets; To raise awareness about SRI in emerging markets; and To enable SRI practitioners in emerging markets to network with peers around the world. This week’s interview is with Peter Clifford, Deputy Secretary General of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE).
Peter has served as Deputy Secretary General of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) since 2000. He joined the WFE in 2000 from Euronext Paris, now NYSE Euronext, where he was Head of International Market Development. His earlier experience in financial markets began with back office services at State Street Bank & Trust in Boston. He also was a swaps broker for an inter-market dealer, and held various roles with Dow Jones & Company in London and Paris. He is a graduate of the University of Kent at Canterbury in England and the Université de Paris Dauphine.
