ESG, Shorting and the Cost of Capital – a journey into data, risk and economics

Presented by

Ulf Füllgraf, Managing Director, Alpha Centauri, Hamburg

About this talk

There has been an intense debate over the last couple of months on the effectiveness of “Shorting” to achieve certain outcomes in Sustainable Investing - especially in Climate related strategies. The discus sion culminated in a series of research papers, a couple of “Letters” in the Financial Times and even tweets on Twitter between MAN Group, AQR, CFM and MSCI. This webinar is about: …the importance of defining the objectives in Sustainable Investing • as Mauboussin´s “Everything is a DCF model” is valid in ESG as well …the potential drivers of return and risk • in ESG and Low Carbon investments …utilizing and combining multiple data sources and state of the art risk models • to build ESG and Low Carbon strategies with low levels of ”unintended risks” …perspectives on the question if “Shorting raises the cost of capital” • and if there´s more economic impact than simple valuation expansion
