In our webinar series, we address the issue of what does a portfolio that is aligned with the Paris Agreement look like in practice. At Barnett Waddingham, we believe that far from being a ‘current issue’, the management of ESG risks will be critical to investment success in the short, medium and long-term.
The private market landscape is quite different from public markets. Here the investment manager has far greater control over the direction the underlying assets take. Having been somewhat slow to embrace ESG and climate change it is clear there is a ground shift taking place within private markets.
The second webinar in our series helps trustees see the opportunities in private markets that can help align their portfolios with the Paris Agreement. We discuss different types of private market assets and their ESG / climate risk credentials. We will also introduce carbon offsetting assets that trustees can use to reduce their carbon footprint and discuss how these can be accessed.
