Delivering sustainable outcomes

Global warming is one of the greatest challenges of the modern world. The scale and urgency of change needed to ensure global greenhouse gas emissions are aligned with a 1.5 degrees Celsius pathway will impact every part of the global economy. As a committed investor, acting and supporting the transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient world is fully consistent with our values.

Through our Climate Transition strategies, we invest in companies and assets driving fundamental changes toward a sustainable future. This is done by targeting opportunities that help accelerate, and benefit from, the transition to a low-carbon economy. We take a unique and innovative approach suitable for investors seeking:

Effective climate risk management

Long-term capital growth

To support the transition to a low-carbon world

A holistic approach to climate transition

We look beyond company emissions to identify the winners from the transition across a broad range of sectors. This means excluding more carbon-intensive fossil fuel companies, and investing in companies that are either mitigating or adapting to climate change, or are transition-oriented companies.

Holistic assessment

Our proprietary model covers a broad range of industries and seeks to reduce decarbonisation and physical climate risks embedded in corporate value chains. This results in a high conviction, but diversified portfolio.

Change-driven analysis

Our dedicated equities and climate specialists work collaboratively. This allows us to better identify risks and change-driven opportunities and construct a bottom-up driven, style-agnostic portfolio.

Positive climate outcomes

We use our scale and influence to engage in a firm-wide corporate engagement programme. This is bolstered by a robust escalation process and active advocation for market reform.

Play your part: Investing to support the climate transition

Today, the climate investment landscape is a veritable mixed bag of active and passive approaches covering a broad spectrum of investment universes and objectives. In this paper, we explore some of the pitfalls of first-generation climate strategies, the meaning of Paris or net zero aligned investments, and the benefits of adopting a holistic approach to climate change investing with a focus on science-based targets.

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up and can fluctuate in response to changes in currency and exchange rates. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Illiquid securities risk

Certain assets held in the funds could, by nature, be hard to value or to sell at a desired time or at a price considered to be fair (especially in large quantities), and as a result their prices could be very volatile.
