A sustainability revolution is underway.
The global economic model is, in our view, unsustainable. Changing demographics, climate change, scarcity of natural resources, inequality and the digital revolution are some of the structural forces that will transform our economies and the businesses that drive them in the coming years.
Consumer behaviour is already shifting as an increasingly informed, and increasingly formidable, social consciousness continues to build. Governments are adding pressure with an acceleration in new legislation, which is increasingly focussed on the role investors can play in financing the transition and holding companies to account. Meanwhile, the changing physical climate is also forcing companies to adapt.
This transition creates great opportunity, but it also creates great risk.
Sustainability is central to both economic outcomes and risk-adjusted returns. With that in mind, investors need to adapt how they run portfolios. After all, sustainability is not a product issue. It is a multi-jurisdictional, multi-asset-class, multi-sector and multi-strategy issue and thus needs to be looked at holistically.
In this webinar will consider how investors can:
* carry out their responsibility to society
* protect portfolios from risk
* gear their portfolios towards the return drivers of tomorrow
