About this talk

– THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF CREDIT ALONG THE PATH TO NET ZERO – Climate transition - not just an equity story. Significantly bigger than public equities as an asset class, fixed income is essential to funding the transition to a net-zero carbon, sustainable economy. Drawing on our global fixed income research and analysis capabilities, WFAM is looking to meaningfully advance progress in this area, in support of investors and asset owners. Our Panel will be offering their perspectives on: – How the response to climate change is driving a profound transition in our global economy – How investors can go beyond basic portfolio decarbonisation techniques – How active management of fixed income portfolios can be used to facilitate specific carbon goals, with awareness of both carbon intensity reductions and forward-looking views on corporates’ abilities to align with a net-zero future – Why engagement shouldn’t be left to equity shareholders alone Speakers: – Hannah Skeates, Co-head, Sustainable Investing, Wells Fargo Asset Management – Thomas Lyons, Senior Investment Analyst, Head of Climate Investment Research, Global Credit Research – Henrietta Pacquement, CFA, Senior Portfolio Manager, Head of Investment Grade – Europe, WFAM Global Fixed Income Moderator: Brendan Maton, IPE
