Global family offices and high net worth individuals have over US$50 trillion in assets to deploy. By 2025, this asset volume is expected to surpass US$100 trillion. This group represents a powerful force for good in the financing of climate solutions and the transition of the financial system towards low-carbon investments, across all asset classes. This webinar will explore low-carbon investment strategies for private investors in the context of a market transition away from fossil fuels and the economy-wide decarbonisation targets reaffirmed in Marrakech.
Leading private wealth advisors are increasingly being asked to measure the impact of their strategies on climate targets, and to incorporate climate value creation metrics into their investment decision-making.
In this ET Index Research webinar industry experts will explain:
• Why leading wealth advisors are adjusting their strategies across asset classes to capture the upside of a market-led transition to zero carbon energy systems
• How family office investors and their advisors can protect their portfolios through the low carbon transition and use strategic capital deployment to accelerate an economy-wide transition.
• What impact private wealth investment decisions mean for the future of climate change policy action and the market-based transition away from fossil fuels.
