We believe climate change is one of the biggest risks in investment portfolios today. In our view, these risks impact a vast number of segments and industries — not just the obvious polluters. But we believe with climate risk also comes tremendous investment opportunity, as the economy reworks against the impact of climate change.
We have developed a range of highly effective solutions to help investors who seek to make a material improvement to their carbon profile, while benefitting from our state-of-the art indexing portfolio management approach which balances diversification, turnover and tracking error objectives.
For investors seeking to align portfolios with the Paris Agreement goals and the transition to a low-carbon economy, we offer a variety of options.
