We believe climate change is one of the biggest risks in investment portfolios today. These risks impact almost all segments and industries – not just the obvious polluters. However, with climate risk comes tremendous investment opportunity as the economy reworks against the impact of climate change.
We’ve developed a range of performance-targeted solutions to help address climate risk and position your portfolio for the transition to the coming low-carbon economy.
Sustainable Climate Strategy
This breakthrough strategy offers global equity exposure, while targeting climate change. It achieves results through a powerful mix of mitigation of current impacts and adaptation to future climate risks.
Improving portfolios for the present and positioning for the future.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the power of governments to address urgent challenges. Across the world, countries have implemented unprecedented fiscal
measures in response to the crisis. This shows the power of governments to implement necessary change to ensure a sustainable and resilient future.
The recommendations from the European Commission’s Technical Expert Group (TEG) on sustainable finance and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) have led to several approaches which are currently used in the market place to assess carbon emissions and calculate company and portfolio-level carbon footprint.
The COVID-19 pandemic represents the most serious global public health challenge for over 100 years. When the crisis passes, we will have a unique opportunity to build a new world as the pandemic — and its widespread impact — has the potential to facilitate the transition from fossil fuels to renewables.
