GREEN INVESTMENTS AS A CLASS OF THEIR OWN
Web Conference | Thu, November 4, 2021 | 3:30pm CET
Climate change has become the new normal in 21st century’s investing. Worldwide, a rethinking of states, industries and companies towards green technology can be observed. Green investments have thus become one of the growth drivers of financial markets. But new energies, energy efficiency, sustainable real estate, climate-neutral business, resource-saving technologies are only some of the trends. How can these topics be translated into equity and bond portfolios? Three experts give perspectives and solutions.
Exclusively for institutional and professional investors from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
All presentations will be held in English.
Start and welcome
Craig Cameron, Portfolio Manager, Franklin Templeton, Global Equity Group
Craig Cameron, portfolio manager of the Templeton Global Climate Change Fund discusses the impact of climate change on the stock market over the long-term, why investors should be aware of their carbon footprint and how investors can benefit from this trend while still having a positive impact on the environment.
Mary-Therese Barton, Head of Emerging Market Debt, Pictet Asset Management
Why ESG in Emerging Market Debt Strategies? It matters for a country’s credit trajectory, because amongst other reasons:
– economic growth which is not inclusive is not sustainable
– human capital development is key
– excessive natural wealth destruction hurts potential growth
– quality of institutions and rule of laws improves resilience
– forward looking view of government stability is key
Edward Bryan, Senior Research Analyst, Alliance Bernstein
