VBDO ONLINE EXPERT SESSION, powered by DWS

CLIMATE TRANSITION RISK, BEFORE AND AFTER THE COVID-19 WAKE-UP CALL.

VBDO (Dutch Association of Investors for Sustainable Development) invites you to join this online expert session.

Based on our yearly benchmark research for Dutch pension funds and insurance companies with regards to responsible investment, we concluded that investors often still lack a comprehensive approach for dealing with climate risk.

However, to be aligned with the Paris agreement, companies, regulators, governments and investors should together focus their actions to deliver a climate neutral economy. With many governments struggling to formulate clear policies, they take different approaches and show different progress at different speed.

How has COVID-19 changed the outlook, what will it take to keep us at these lower emission levels and what is the risk that we will simply rush back to business as usual, and in doing so precipitate the next disruptive crisis?

And how will investors assume their responsibility, for example by adjusting their portfolios to be positioned to minimise the risks and capture the opportunities during the transition to a carbon neural economy?

This VBDO online expert session, in cooperation with DWS, offers the opportunity to find answers to these questions, enjoy a lively discussion with renowned experts in the field and more.

Program Online Expert Session June 16th, 3:00 - 4:30 PM:
• Introduction by Jacqueline Duiker, Senior Manager Sustainability & Responsible Investment, VDBO
• The Inevitable Policy Response by Don Gerritsen, Regional Head Benelux PRI and Jason Eis, Executive Director Vivid Economics
• Dark and light green low carbon benchmarks and indices by Andreas Hoepner, University College Dublin and member of the EU Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance
• Transition risks and opportunities by Michael Lewis, Head of ESG Thematic Research at DWS
• Q&A

We hope to welcome you.

  • The COVID-19 effect: Sectors, Factors & Themes Recorded: May 19 2020 50 mins
    Zeb Saeed & Lukas Ahnert, DWS
    In this session, we will explore the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on different sector and factor returns.

    As single stock return dispersion rises, selection across factors and sectors can help more than ever in generating excess returns. This is especially true during volatile markets and the drifts experienced so far have shown the pandemic as a catalyst for existing trends:
    •Increasing need for Health care from researching vaccines to catering to ageing populations, and the continuous rise of IT and Communication services.
    •Profitability issues around brick & mortar retailers and European financials, as well as potentially stranded assets in the traditional Energy sector.
    •Continued outperformance of momentum, low volatility, quality and ESG stocks overall.

    We aim to provide an insight into the COVID effect on these trends and how we see these developing into the future.
  • Long View: The impact of COVID-19 pandemic on long-term return forecasts Recorded: May 15 2020 39 mins
    Francesco Curto, Colin McKenzie & Dirk Schlueter, DWS
    During this talk, we will discuss our latest research in which we use our experience of past crises to try to understand the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on long-term expected returns. We define three scenarios based on assumptions of differing severity of the pandemic. We use a bottom-up approach (rather than top-down), first analysing how fundamentals may have been impacted by the crisis, and how that flows through to expected returns.

    The first scenario, ‘Status Quo’, shows the impact on expected returns from the sell-off in Q1. This scenario assumes that the long-term fundamentals driving returns have not changed because of the crisis. This may be a brave assumption on several levels. Therefore, we propose two alternative scenarios: ‘2009-repeat’ and ‘three-sigma’, with the latter assuming the crisis to be a once-in-a-century event.

    We will focus on the similarities and the differences of today’s crisis compared to the 2008/9 crisis, as well as the potential implications for long term investors.
