Enabling the Future: Green Finance With Romina Savova, PensionBee and Joe Parkin, Blackrock

This week we present a very special Fireside Chat as part of Fintech Week London 2021 which was broadcast live from Barclays Rise. Joining Lloyd Wahed, we’ll have special guests from PensionBee and Blackrock explaining different strategies to encourage green finance: excluding fossil fuel producers from investments, engage with fossil fuel producers and how to encourage them to change, impact investing and actually putting your money into companies that are actively doing things to make the world better.


Romi Savova, who founded PensionBee in 2014 to simplify pension savings in the UK, following a difficult pension transfer experience of her own. As the Chief Executive Officer, she has played a pivotal role in advancing consumer standards in the pensions industry, from reducing transfer times to campaigning for the full abolition of exit fees. Romi is also a member of the government’s Pensions Dashboards Programme Steering Group, which was set up to advise on the delivery of pensions dashboards.

Joe Parkin, Managing Director, Head of Banks and Digital Channels in the UK at BlackRock. In his role he is responsible for BlackRock’s relationships with Private, Retail and Neo Banks, as well as Digital Channels in the UK.

Big thanks to our co-organizers Erlang Solutions, the éminence grise behind some fintech projects of Klarna, Mastercard, Bloomberg LP.
