ESG & Credit: How To Mitigate Both Financial And Climate Risks

Institutional investors are increasingly looking at making their significant fixed income allocations part of their sustainable investing strategy. But whilst the recent market turmoil highlights the need to further include ESG in foundational risk management efforts, some challenges around data and portfolio construction still remain in the fixed income space.

During this webinar our experts will explore how to:

• Combine ESG and credit research to mitigate portfolio downside risk
• Construct portfolios to avoid unintended risks
• Minimize the carbon footprint in fixed income portfolios

  • How to reach net-zero carbon in real estate by 2040 Mar 17 2021 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Abigail Dean, Global Head of Strategic Insights, Nuveen Real Estate | Erik Landry, Climate Change Specialist, GRESB
    Real estate is one of the world’s largest producers of greenhouse gas emissions, making the road to net zero carbon difficult to navigate.

    And yet, Nuveen Real Estate plans to be net zero carbon by 2040 – ten years ahead of when the World Green Building Council states it is necessary to meet the Paris Accord.

    Abigail Dean, Nuveen Real Estate’s Head of Strategic Insights, discusses their pathway to net zero carbon and shares best practices for achieving this goal.

    Highlights include:

    – A building-specific approach
    – An enterprise-wide pathway
    – Local and regional insights from around the globe
    – The need for industry collaboration and innovation
    – Net zero carbon’s challenges and ambiguities

    Measuring, reporting and validating progress to net zero carbon is one of those challenges. GRESB’s Climate Change Specialist Erik Landry joins Abigail to explore the need for reliable ESG information, standardised global benchmarks and collective action in the real estate industry.

    Rich Donnellan, Nasdaq Asset Owner Solutions | Soo Kobberstad, LPPI | Tony Yiu, Solovis | Brendan Maton, IPE
    Between February 19, 2020 and March 23, 2020, the S&P 500 crashed almost 35%. The speed and ferocity of the selloff was shocking and caught many market participants unaware. As did the recovery when the S&P 500 surged more than 60% in just over five months. In the economic aftermath, various corporate sectors are facing significant financial hardship and many markets globally are as volatile as they have been in generations. All of which leaves institutional investors across the world with the responsibility of anticipating and planning for what may come next.

    Join our panel of experts to hear how they reacted to the volatility of 2020 and what they would do differently in the next market crisis.

  • Capturing the Carbon Opportunity - The New Frontier in Forestry Investment Recorded: Feb 11 2021 70 mins
    Olly Hughes and David Gardner, Gresham House | Lea Dubourg-Hrachovec, Pension Protection Fund | Simon Whistler, PRI
    Forestry provides a multifaceted solution in the drive towards net zero economies, and one that is increasingly relevant for institutional investors looking to combine sustainable long-term returns with inherent environmental and social benefits. Carbon absorption and storage by forests is recognised in the Paris Agreement as a key part of the solution to climate change.

    Carbon forestry has emerged as a new investment sector which contributes directly towards the target to reduce emissions through commercial reforestation or the development of new permanent forests not harvested for commercial timber, but instead producing new carbon credits. Returns from carbon forestry are accretive to conventional timberland returns and uncorrelated to other asset classes.

    For conventional timberland, the benefits of using timber and timber products in place of environmental damaging alternatives will assume ever greater importance in our transition towards a low carbon economy and are expected to drive further timber price growth.

    To incentivise and achieve the goal of limiting temperature increases to between 1.5°C and 2°C, global economies must combine the use of carbon credits, allowing a transitionary period, with the development of new technologies and practices to significantly reduce carbon emissions.

    These pathways to net zero are creating an exciting new frontier for Forestry investors.

    Join experts from Forestry investment specialists Gresham House Asset Management, The Pension Protection Fund and the PRI as they share their insights into Forestry as a sustainable and commercial asset class and discuss the unique opportunity for institutional investors in 2021 and beyond.

    Presented by:
    Olly Hughes, Managing Director, Forestry - Gresham House

  • From portfolio-level decarbonisation to real-world emissions reduction Recorded: Feb 9 2021 69 mins
    Erik Christiansen, ESG & Low Carbon Investment Specialist and Frédéric Ducoulombier, ESG Director, Scientific Beta
    – Beyond EU Paris-Aligned Benchmark Compliance –

    A growing number of investors seek to play their part in the fight against climate change by investing in low carbon and climate scenario alignment strategies.

    The regulation defining the requirements for recognition as EU Paris-aligned Benchmark pursues alignment through weighted average carbon intensity reduction and activity-based exclusions.

    However, reducing the average carbon intensity of a financial portfolio does not necessarily lead to progress in terms of alignment.

    In this webinar we will therefore discuss the following questions:
    - How can investors effectively incentivise companies to act on climate change?
    - How to align investment decisions with engagement ambitions?
    - How to integrate alignment criteria beyond current carbon intensity?
    - What are the implications for targets, constraints, metrics and data in the context of portfolio construction?
    - How to make sure capital is reallocated over time in line with companies’ decarbonisation pledges and achievements?

  • Japan equity strategy: As the world reopens, the rediscovery of Japan continues Recorded: Feb 2 2021 64 mins
    Richard Kaye - Analyst/Portfolio Manager, Comgest | Brendan Maton, IPE
    This could be Japan’s decade. After twenty years as a Cinderella market, Japan is being rediscovered by its own investors and foreigners as a platform to invest in Asia, and for the changes the country is going through. The iPhone, the Electric Vehicle, renewable energy, are just some global themes which have allowed Japanese equity active funds quietly to outperform even the S&P 500 over several years. Comgest’s long presence in Japan and work with local investors has given us a framework to identify the small sub-set of listed companies that best represent the quality, long-term growth opportunities of this broad, deep and unknown market.

  • Investing in China with an ESG lens: How technology can enhance ESG decisions Recorded: Jan 27 2021 64 mins
    Sau Kwan, E Fund Management | Ronald van Dijk, APG Asset Management | Claudia Kruse, APG Asset Management | Chris Liu, E Fund
    2020 has been a challenging year on many fronts. As many countries continue to grapple with the economic fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic, one global theme to emerge and grow in importance is sustainable responsible investing and the incorporation of ESG practices into the investment process.

    Whilst many of the developed markets continue to face challenges caused by the pandemic, the swift economic recovery in China continues and as business returns to a new normal, the interest and attention of the global investor community is now focused on accessing these growing opportunities in China.

    Whilst global capital searches for yield in new markets, a key issue that investors face is the difficulties of integrating ESG when investing in a fast developing and diverse market like China.

    With advances in technology, including AI and Machine Learning we examine how to effectively support the ESG integration and investment decision making process in the Chinese market.

    Please join our webcast to hear how experts from one of Europe’s leading fiduciary manager for Dutch pension funds APG and China’s largest asset manager E Fund who have developed a partnership to address these challenges and invest sustainably in China.

  • How can Core Real Estate Investors have a positive impact on Climate? Recorded: Jan 20 2021 65 mins
    Laurent Ternisien & Nehla Krir, BNP Paribas | Prof.dr. Dirk Brounen, Tilburg University | Rodney Zimmerman, a.s.r Real Estate
    The real estate sector has a pivotal role to play in tackling the climate challenge with the sector being responsible for 39% of all global Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GhG), according to the World Green Building Council.

    While Impact Investing Strategies have mainly been focusing on Social impact within the real estate industry, this webinar aims at discussing how Core European Real Estate strategies can deliver a positive and measurable climate impact by focusing on the existing stock. Several key objectives in terms of reducing GhG emissions will be addressed in the context of the 2015 Paris Agreement.

    During the webinar, the different levers that real estate investors may have will be discussed, as well a specific reporting frameworks that can be envisaged to quantify the investor positive impact on assets and to measure the success of reducing GhG emissions and contribution to the low carbon transition.

    Speakers:

    - Laurent Ternisien, Chief Client Officer of BNP Paribas REIM Intro
    - Prof.dr. Dirk Brounen, CCREM, Professor of Real Estate Economics, Tilburg University

  • China Green Bonds and High Yields: Investing with certainty in 2021 Recorded: Jan 14 2021 68 mins
    Dr Sean Chang & Grace Ng, Ping An of China Asset Management (Hong Kong) | Brendan Maton, IPE
    China’s economic recovery broadened at the end of 2020 as both retail sales and industrial production growth accelerated, and should be the only G20 country to record positive growth in 2020. What’s more, as the second largest bond market in the world, China is now putting more and more efforts to open up its financial markets to foreign investors.

    In a world in which a huge portion of the highest quality fixed income has dropped into negative yield territory, it is critical for institutional investors to re-evaluate their positioning now if they want to invest with some certainty in an uncertain era.

    Join our experts from Ping An of China Asset Management (Hong Kong), a trusted partner for global investors seeking China expertise, as they share the key trends and opportunities in onshore and offshore fixed income markets of China, covering Green Bonds, High Yields, RMB Bonds, Private Credits, etc.

  • Renewables are not enough – infrastructure in a post COVID world Recorded: Jan 12 2021 66 mins
    Ingrid Edmund, Senior Portfolio Manager, Columbia Threadneedle | Thora Frost, Senior Manager Green Finance, Carbon Trust
    Infrastructure is associated with tangible assets providing essential services, delivering stable and predictable cash flows. Covid-19 has highlighted the critical role of infrastructure to our societies and economies, but has also brought such disruption in a short period that will have longer lasting effects than ever before. For investors, it has been a lot more challenging to invest whilst taking a view for the next 20 to 40 years.

    – What does the infrastructure of the future look like?
    – How can we build a resilient portfolio that continues to deliver defensive, uncorrelated, predictable income and steady capital growth?
    – Where can we find value?

    Our conviction is the answers to these questions lies, to a great extent, in the way that ESG is integrated into the investment approach. ESG integration is a dominant theme today and there’s no doubt that infrastructure has been an asset class that recognised the interaction of social and environmental risks and impacts on the financial outcomes earlier than others. However, now is the time to take ESG integration to the next level.

    Much focus to date has been explicitly on the environment and the threat of climate change. This has led to a welcome surge in renewable energy investment. Social has been the “poor” cousin in ESG. Covid-19 has proven, in a very short period, that Green should not be a trade-off vs Social & Sustainability. All can flourish going forward. Furthermore, if we are to ever meet the net zero- and 1.5-degree pledges under the Paris Agreement, more needs to be done than generate green energy. Infrastructure sectors, which deliver critical social and economic benefits, such as transportation, energy infrastructure, heating and digital are in critical need of decarbonization, thus more investment is needed. Investors have an unprecedented opportunity to make a significant social impact and decarbonize our economy, whilst generating alpha and future-proofing returns.

    Andre Voinea, Leiter deutschsprachige Regionen, HANetf

    Kryptowährungen galten einst als Wilder Westen. Der Boom im Jahr 2018 ließ genauso schnell nach, wie er gekommen war. Aber Bitcoin und andere Kryptowährungen haben sich als Widerstandsfähig erwiesen und erleben nun eine zweite Blütezeit. Werden professionelle Anleger diesmal partizipieren? Wir glauben ja. Vor zwei Jahren fehlte institutionellen Anlegern noch das notwendige Werkzeuge, um Zugang zum unregulierten Kryptowährungsmarkt zu erhalten. In 2020 wurde diese Lücke geschlossen dank der Einführung regulierter, börsengehandelter Produkte im Gewand einer erprobten ETP Struktur. Wird Bitcoin also nun zum digitalen Gold im Portfolio?

    Nehmen Sie teil an unserem Webinar und erfahren Sie mehr zu folgenden Themen:

    • Warum sollten sich institutionelle Anleger für digitale Vermögenswerte interessieren? Eine Risiko-Rendite-Analyse

  • Is Diversification Dead? Recorded: Nov 25 2020 68 mins
    David Schofield - President, Intech International Division | Iheshan Faasee, Managing Director, Client Portfolio Manager
    Equity markets have been dominated by a handful of the largest stocks for several years. As a result, today’s cap-weighted indexes are nearing historical levels of capital concentration – and those few, dominant stocks wield a disproportionate influence over market returns. In a market driven by the behaviour of a handful of stocks, does a diversified approach to equity investing still make sense?

    In this webinar, the President of Intech’s International Division, David Schofield, and Iheshan Faasee, managing director and client portfolio manager, will discuss:

    • Are market stress indicators showing signs that a size reversal is ahead?
    • Can systematic rebalancing generate alpha over time?
    • What is a portfolio’s Excess Growth Rate, and how does it contribute to portfolio returns?
    • How does an optimized portfolio exploit the rebalancing premium?

  • How to reconcile Defensiveness and Low Carbon Investing Recorded: Nov 19 2020 64 mins
    Eric Shirbini, Global Research and Investment Solutions Director, Scientific Beta | Brendan Maton, IPE
    Defensive equity strategies aim to protect investors during a crisis while also providing better risk-adjusted return compared to the cap-weighted index, through exposure to the Low Volatility risk factor. Scientific Beta has launched a new defensive strategy that aims to address two important drawbacks of traditional defensive offerings.

    • Traditional defensive solutions based on minimum volatility or low volatility strategies are unfortunately not truly defensive in periods of high market volatility, at a time when lower risk is needed most. To address this volatility risk, Scientific Beta provides a highly defensive strategy that targets a constant volatility equal to the strategy’s historical volatility by dynamically reducing the strategy’s market beta during periods of crisis when market volatility is elevated. This feature provides very strong capital protection compared to more traditional defensive strategies.

    • Traditional defensive strategies also suffer from high carbon exposure compared to a cap-weighted index because these strategies overweight low risk sectors such as utilities which include companies with a high carbon exposure. This high carbon exposes these types of strategies to climate risk. Scientific Beta offers its new defensive strategy with a sharp reduction in carbon exposure compared to traditional defensive strategies and cap-weighted indices without sacrificing the defensive properties of the strategy.
