    Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group (EEFIG) – New Working Groups

    Third phase of the Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group (EEFIG) – become involved with a range of new working groups.

    The European Commission and UNEP FI have launched calls for expression of interest for several new EEFIG working groups dealing with leading edge issues to scale up energy efficiency investment, in support of the European Green Deal and the EU´s Sustainable Finance Action Plan. Energy efficiency is also central for the implementation of the Principles for Responsible Banking since real estate represents a major share of banks´ financed emissions.

    -Financial Performance of EE loans: This working group will utilize advanced data analytics to assess the contribution of energy efficiency to credit quality in mortgage books, to inform discussions of the Green Supporting Factor.
    -Multiple benefits: This working group will assess the contribution of energy efficiency to non-energy issues on a macroeconomic level (such as economic growth, job creation, economic productivity) and on the level of individual efficiency transactions.
    -Financial instruments: This working group will take stock of leading practices emerging for both public and private financial instruments and how they can be blended to scale up energy efficiency, covering industry, buildings, secondary markets and how they link to the EU´s sustainable finance activities.
    -Dissemination/communications: This working group will aim to disseminate the results of EEFIG activities more widely, and UNEP FI and the EC are looking to appoint a set of EEFIG ambassadors who can disseminate the results of EEFIG more widely in the finance community.

    During the webinar, the working group leads will present in greater detail on the working mode and main topics to be addressed by each working group, and we will describe the kind of expertise we seek and process for sending in an expression of interest.

  • Challenging and new data areas the “S” and the “G”: ESG Data Part 3
    Challenging and new data areas the “S” and the “G”: ESG Data Part 3
    Responsible Investor Recorded: Jan 23 2020 73 mins
    The third webinar in this series will focus on how corporate data collection metrics, inclusions and exclusions, affect the weighting of governance and social indicators used by investors in determining the market value of a company. The webinar will also review how legal change is affecting the ability of companies to engage with investors and create common ground in the understanding and use of social and governance data.

    Questions for discussion may include:

    How are companies “S” and “G” data determined by investors when specific metrics are not available, comparable or consistent? What role can investors play in ensuring transparency through their engagement strategies?

    What are the challenges companies face generally and particularly in responding to new legislation requiring them to update their data identification and collection processes?

    How can companies improve the communication of their corporate governance structures, policies, and business practices to investor audiences?

    ESG applicable metrics for a number of areas e.g., for supply chain management, diversity and inclusion, ethical sourcing, plastics, and human capital, are still being developed. In the absence of comparable and clear metrics, how can companies be appropriately assessed by investors?

    How effective do investors and companies feel the New Corporate Governance Code and the New Stewardship Code has been in helping to improve engagement on “S” and “G” data?

  • TB Saracen UK Income Fund: Light At The End Of The Tunnel
    TB Saracen UK Income Fund: Light At The End Of The Tunnel
    Scott McKenzie & David Clark Recorded: Jan 22 2020 33 mins
    The UK Equity Income sector has been the foundation of many UK investor portfolios for many years and has hosted a number of our most celebrated fund managers.

    However, the traditional approach to generating income from a UK equity portfolio has increasingly come under threat with a number of the large income-generating sectors becoming ex-growth.

    Too often UK income investors find themselves reliant on a small number of high yielding businesses whose best days are behind them and where dividend payments look fragile.

    All of this has come during a time when investors have prized growth over value and UK equities have been shunned in the light of the Brexit chaos.

    Post the recent election the political outlook has become more stable and the path to Brexit should become clearer. Is there now light at the end of the tunnel ?

    When we launched the TB Saracen UK Income fund in April 2015 we were determined to take a different approach in the light of these challenges.

    We strongly believe that valuations matter and that equity income funds should provide investors with a high and growing income.

    In this webcast we review the performance of the TB Saracen UK Income fund and outline why we feel the Fund is well positioned to meet the needs of income investors.

    Some of the key themes we will address include:

    - Why value strategies are still relevant in a changing world
    - The importance of a focussed, ‘multicap’ approach
    - The risks to UK dividends going forward

  • ESG and the Evolution of Small Cap Investing
    ESG and the Evolution of Small Cap Investing
    Pam Hegarty and Eric McLaughlin Feb 4 2020 3:30 pm UTC 30 mins
    Investing today is moving beyond strictly modelling future cash-flows and earnings, to a paradigm where one must strive to understand and consider environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) as part of their investment rationale. Our consideration of ESG is driven by client preferences, as well as by our changing world. This can be a complicated matter for small cap investors and, because the evolution of the topic of ESG has been swift, smaller companies can have fewer resources available to deal with its ramifications.

    During this webcast, our US Equities team will discuss the four key elements of our approach to ESG integration: screening criteria, risk assessment, opportunity identification, and engagement. We will also discuss the challenges in applying ESG to the small cap universe, including lack of disclosure on the part of companies, less availability of third party data and research, and how we manage those challenges.

  • Addressing the Impact of Tougher Rules on Investment Governance on Trustees
    Addressing the Impact of Tougher Rules on Investment Governance on Trustees
    Sean.Thompson, Managing Director, CAMRADATA; Amy Richardson, Senior Director, CAMRADATA Feb 11 2020 2:30 pm UTC 45 mins
    Explore the tougher rules on investment governance affecting trustees’ responsibilities going forwards.

    From December 2019, trustees are legally required to run competitive tender processes to recruit fiduciary managers. Trustees will also be required to set strategic objectives for consultants, so they can measure whether the service is good value for money.

    Whether trustees are using a fiduciary management or investment consultancy advisory governance model; trustees are responsible for monitoring asset performance. This is also one way to measure whether the service has been good value for money.

    But how do trustees monitor this on an independent basis? And without using resource and time? CAMRADATA will provide information on how we are currently working with institutional investors and discuss some of the reports that are available to all trustees to help them monitor performance on an independent, ongoing and automated basis, to help meet these new requirements.

    Responsible Investor and Refinitiv Feb 12 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This webinar will assess ESG data integration by global investors in managing risks and creating alpha across portfolios. The discussion will dig into Refinitiv’s ESG database covering more than 7,000 public companies across all markets to consider how investors are able to use this information across asset classes to boost returns and manage risk.

    As pressure grows for the integration of ESG factors into company valuation and sustainable and impact investing continues to attract more assets, the call to investors and corporates to address ESG data quality, consistency and accuracy becomes louder. Within these global trends, can ESG scores cut through the noise and boost long-term returns?
