A core, beta-based climate strategy, combined with a satellite, alpha-oriented high-conviction climate strategy, demonstrated alpha and diversification benefits for a controlled tracking error.
For institutional investors seeking answers wishing to integrate their strategic views on climate change into their portfolios, State Street Global Advisors offers both alpha- and beta-oriented solutions.
The State Street Global Climate Transition strategy is a concentrated, high-conviction approach that seeks to generate alpha by selecting securities based on our analysts’ proprietary and forward-looking climate transition scores. The objective is to select companies that are climate-transition leaders and influencers in their respective industries. We believe the high-conviction nature of the Global Climate Transition strategy makes it suitable for use as a satellite in core-satellite portfolio construction.
The State Street Sustainable Climate World Equity strategy is much broader and is fully rules-based, with climate change parameters that are more historically focussed.
The two strategies are highly complementary in terms of investment style and conviction. They:

The Strategy Information above is that of a single representative account within the Composite, which is subject to change. The representative account was chosen because it has no material restrictions and fairly represents the investment style of the Strategy. The Supplemental Information should not be deemed to be reflective of (and could differ from) the overall Composite or any other single account within the Composite.
Diversification does not ensure a profit or guarantee against loss.
The information provided does not constitute investment advice and it should not be relied on as such. It should not be considered a solicitation to buy or an offer to sell a security. It does not take into account any investor’s particular investment objectives, strategies, tax status, or investment horizon. You should consult your tax and financial advisor.

Projected characteristics are based upon estimates and reflect subjective judgments and assumptions. There can be no assurance that developments will transpire as forecasted and that the estimates are accurate.
Quantitative investing assumes that future performance of a security relative to other securities may be predicted based on historical economic and financial factors, however, any errors in a model used might not be detected until the fund has sustained a loss or reduced performance related to such errors.
SSGA uses quantitative models in an effort to enhance returns and manage risk. While SSGA expects these models to perform as expected, deviation between the forecasts and the actual events can result in either no advantage or in results opposite to those desired by SSGA. In particular, these models may draw from unique historical data that may not predict future trades or market performance adequately. There can be no assurance that the models will behave as expected in all market conditions. In addition, computer programming used to create quantitative models, or the data on which such models operate, might contain one or more errors. Such errors might never be detected, or might be detected only after the Portfolio has sustained a loss (or reduced performance) related to such errors. Availability of third-party models could be reduced or eliminated in the future.
The returns on a portfolio of securities which exclude companies that do not meet the portfolio’s specified ESG criteria may trail the returns on a portfolio of securities which include such companies.
A portfolio’s ESG criteria may result in the portfolio investing in industry sectors or securities which underperform the market as a whole.
Responsible-Factor (R Factor) scoring is designed by State Street to reflect certain ESG characteristics and does not represent investment performance. Results generated out of the scoring model is based on sustainability and corporate governance dimensions of a scored entity.
