Sustainability & Climate: What Gets Measured Gets Done

*For professional investors only*

– Creating & Implementing a Forward-Looking Rules-Based Approach to Sustainability & Climate –

Now more than ever, investors are turning to ETFs powered by rules-based indices to build more sustainable portfolios. With climate-related risks posing a potential threat to the long-term strength of many institutional investment portfolios and with the increasing volume of data to help identify key climate-related risks and opportunities, two experts at FlexShares Exchange Traded Funds & Qontigo explain the process of creating indices that effectively incorporate climate metrics and investment factors such as high dividend, quality and low volatility into the index construction process.

Join us for an in-depth partnership discussion on the creation and usage of the recently launched iSTOXX® Northern Trust Climate ESG Indices – that address two challenges that professional investors are dealing with in this low yield, high volatility market.

Agenda includes:

• Conversation around the partnership between Northern Trust Asset Management and Qontigo that drove the index creation process;
• A closer look at how the indices embed SASB’s Materiality Map® in an effort to identify sustainability issues that are likely to affect the financial condition or operating performance of companies within a given industry;
• Integrating a multi-factor approach including the application of a quality process that consists of three composite categories – Management Efficiency, Profitability & Cash Flow/ Financial Strength in order to identify sustainable dividends.

Presented by:
– Christopher Huemmer – Senior Investment Strategist, FlexShares ETFs, Northern Trust Asset Management
– Hamish Seegopaul – Managing Director, R&D, ESG and Quantitative Indices, Qontigo

  • Positioning Your Equity Portfolio to Benefit from Rising Inflation Jul 8 2021 1:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Felix Goltz, PhD, Research Director | Eric Shirbini, PhD, Global Research and Investment Solutions Director, Scientific Beta
    As the economy opens up and stimulus spending commences, the market is concerned about inflation fears. Using TIPS to aim for full hedging of inflation would have a high opportunity cost, especially with negative interest rates. Instead, investors can turn to their performance-seeking portfolio for long-run inflation protection. Equities are a natural candidate for this, since unlike commodities, they offer a positive long-term risk premium.

    Currently, there are no passive equity products that provide exposure to macroeconomic risks such as inflation in a systematic fashion. We aim to fill this gap by developing indices for targeted macroeconomic exposure.

    In this webinar, we present our equity inflation indices, the first in a series of targeted macroeconomic factor indices from Scientific Beta. The objective of these indices is to provide long-term equity performance with additional inflation protection compared to a traditional cap-weighted index. As a result, these indices are ideal candidates to replace cap-weight indices for investors with inflation fears and as equity components of a multi-asset portfolio that requires insulation against inflation shocks.

    During this webinar we will cover the following topics:

    – Reliable measurement of macroeconomic exposure (role of robust statistics and forward-looking information)
    – Equity portfolios dedicated to inflation lead to stronger targeted inflation-surprise exposures compared to a factor or sector allocation approach
    – Inflation indices can protect against future inflation shocks while earning the long-term equity risk premium
    – Comparison of the conditional performance of equity inflation strategies with that of other asset classes

  • Operational Risk Management: Empowering Strategic Decision Making and Oversight Recorded: Jun 16 2021 63 mins
    Frans Hofkens, Northern Trust | Vincent Molino, Northern Trust Front Office Solutions | Brendan Maton, IPE
    As has been evident from the global financial crisis, successful risk management stands or falls with good governance and the right culture within an organisation. The outcomes of decisions, especially in the long-term, are by definition uncertain and necessitate a careful and balanced decision-making process as the basis for making future-proofed choices.

    Join our webcast with Northern Trust in exploring how Operational Due Diligence (ODD) and Operational Risk Management (ORM) play an essential part in a pension fund’s risk management strategy – from the decision making process when appointing a third party asset manager through to continued monitoring of outsourced services.

    The webcast will cover:

    • An integrated risk management framework and the management of non-financial risk
    • Key trends and industry best practices - including insights from the Netherlands where the Pension Act obliges Dutch pension funds to conduct and demonstrate controlled and ethical business operations
    • How ORM and ODD help from the outset and throughout a period of outsourcing

    Frederic Blanc-Brude, Director of EDHECinfra, CEO of Scientific Infra Pte Ltd | Brendan Maton, IPE
    Real assets are a vital part of a diversified portfolio for many investors, particularly traditional equities and bonds in a high-valuation, low-yield environment. Join us for a conversation about the infrastructure asset class and the potential it offers to institutional investors.

    The webcast will cover:

    – what are the characteristics of infrastructure investments and their cash flows?
    – how risky are these cash flows and how should they be discounted?
    – what is the evolution of expected returns and the costs of capital of private infrastructure?
    – what are the risks of bankruptcy or equity 'wipe-out'?
  • Great expectations in inflation Recorded: Jun 10 2021 65 mins
    Andrew Mulliner, CFA Head of Global Aggregate Strategies, Portfolio Manager | Helen Anthony, CFA Portfolio Manager
    Is inflation a problematic concept in an era where technology dominates? Are we in danger of putting too much emphasis on short-term commodity price moves and overlooking bigger picture inflation drivers such as digitalisation?

    In this topical webcast from Janus Henderson, fixed income managers Andy Mulliner and Helen Anthony will demystify inflation, exploring what it is and what it is not, why it is a challenge to measure accurately and why it can be a headache for central bankers. Highlighting some of the key secular drivers shaping the outlook for inflation from shifting demographics to technological change and global trade, they will explore the outlook for inflation and the risks and opportunities this creates for fixed income investors.
  • The Importance of Institutional Impact Investing: care homes as an illustration Recorded: Jun 9 2021 62 mins
    Michael Toft, Octopus Real Estate | Benjamin Davis, Octopus Real Estate | Tom Morgan, CBRE | Brendan Maton, IPE
    The UK healthcare real estate sector is maturing. Occupational demand is growing owing to an ageing population and rising care needs. Meanwhile an undersupply of high-quality purpose-built accommodation persists.

    The last decade has seen increasing interest in the UK healthcare market from institutional investors attracted by the scope for long dated income, attractive yields and diversification attributes.

    Recent trends among institutions towards impact investing have only served to increase interest. The sector offers investors the opportunity to achieve attractive financial returns while helping solve a key societal challenge – the need for high quality care provision for our elderly population.

    Join us at this educational webinar at 12:30pm on Wednesday 9 June to learn about:

    – ESG and impact considerations of investing in healthcare real estate
    – The market dynamics underpinning healthcare real estate in the UK
    – The factors driving increased demand from institutional investors

  • IPE D.A.CH-Webinar „USA im Fokus” Recorded: Jun 9 2021 79 mins
    Frank Schnattinger, IPE D.A.CH | Julian Cook, T.Rowe Price | Diego Föllmi, Hérens Quality Asset Management
    Ein erstes Zwischenfazit für (Aktien-)Investoren nach sechs Monaten unter Präsident Joe Biden

    Mit dem Wahlsieg von Joe Biden im vergangenen November und seiner Amtseinführung im Januar 2021 hat eine Zeit der gemäßigteren Töne in der US-Handelspolitik begonnen. Seine Wahl, so schrieben viele Analysten, sei eine gute Nachricht für die Märkte. Tatsächlich legte die neue US-Regierung dann ein schnelles Tempo vor. Die fortgeschrittene Impfkampagne und der so genannte American Rescue Plan mit einem Gesamtvolumen von rund 1.900 Mrd. US-Dollar tragen dazu bei, dass für die US-Wirtschaft dieses Jahr eine Erholung von 6,4% erwartet wird. Nun soll auch noch der American Jobs Plan, der weite Teile der Infrastruktur- und Investitionspläne der neuen US-Regierung umfasst, auf den Weg gebracht werden.

    Im Rahmen unseres Webinars „USA im Fokus“ wollen wir auf die ersten Monate der Amtszeit von Joe Biden blicken und insbesondere den Ausblick wagen, welchen Einfluss seine Politik auf den Aktienmarkt hat. Werden steigende Zinsen den Aktienmarkt unter Druck bringen oder legt Biden mit seinen Maßnahmen den Grundstein für weiter starke US-Werte? Das Webinar findet am Mittwoch den 9. Juni 2021 von 10.00 bis 11.15 Uhr statt. Beiträge kommen von T. Rowe Price & Hérens Quality Asset Management. Jonah M. Otto von der Universität Augsburg wird dazu in einer kurzen Keynote die ersten Monate von Präsident Biden unter die Lupe nehmen.

  • Key Performance Indicators for Climate Investing Recorded: Jun 3 2021 58 mins
    Felix Goltz, PhD, Research Director, Scientific Beta | Victor Liu, CFA, ESG Analyst, Scientific Beta | Brendan Maton, IPE
    – How consistent are climate strategies with impact objectives? –

    Climate investing strategies seek to reward virtuous companies with increasing capital and provide incentives for management to reduce the climate impact of corporate activities. We analyse whether typical strategies that tilt to stocks with good climate scores or optimise portfolio climate scores are consistent with this impact objective.

    We analyse common climate strategies and analyse the holdings of such strategies. How strategies decide on weights at the individual stock level, and how these weights change over time is crucial for driving impact on company management to act for the climate. Therefore, we go beyond analysing portfolio level weighted-average scores that are targeted by such strategies and instead ask how well the strategies incentivise companies to reduce the climate damage they create.

    Topics covered include:

    – A taxonomy of climate investing strategies
    – Identifying the key drivers of capital supply from climate investing to green and brown firms
    – Assessing the consistency of signals for incentivizing firms to act on climate

  • Breaking Down Corporate Net-Zero Climate Targets Recorded: May 25 2021 66 mins
    Linda-Eling Lee, MSCI | Oliver Marchand, MSCI Climate Risk Center | Brendan Maton, IPE
    An increasing number of companies are announcing decarbonization or ‘net-zero’ commitments with approximately 35% of MSCI ACWI Index constituents having set some type of target as of January 2021. But how realistic are these targets? MSCI’s latest analysis reveals targets that appear to be similar in their headline can turn out to be quite different underneath the hood. This disparity may make it difficult to assess the potential impact targets could have, if achieved, on the environment or on companies’ climate risk profiles.

    Join MSCI and IPE as we explore some of the common decarbonization approaches and provide a framework for investors to compare companies’ climate commitments and assess where some of the strengths and weaknesses of a target may lie.

  • Forestry, Carbon and Climate Change: Investing for the Future Recorded: May 20 2021 59 mins
    Che Charteris, CEO, Craigmore | Nick Tapp, Head of Investor Relations, Craigmore | Brendan Maton, IPE
    ▪ In this webcast Craigmore farming and forestry experts, Che Charteris and Nick Tapp will discuss the economic and environmental benefits of forestry - with New Zealand as a case study.

    ▪ New Zealand forestry derives revenue from the sale of timber and from carbon credits (NZUs) allocated in recognition of the carbon removed from the atmosphere by a forest as it grows.

    ▪ New Zealand enjoys a significant competitive advantage in forestry. Growth rates are extremely fast with a 27-year rotation. Faster growth both removes carbon from the atmosphere and delivers mature stands of timber more quickly.

    ▪ Che Charteris, Craigmore’s CEO, explains that “where cash flows from new forests were previously only received at harvest at around the 27-year mark, the sale of carbon credits allows the Partnership to make distributions to our investors at a much earlier stage. This significant recognition of the importance of forestry as part of addressing climate change has changed the economics of the sector”.
  • (Climate) change in portfolios: efficient and complete decarbonisation Recorded: May 19 2021 61 mins
    Dr. Ralf Seiz - CEO of Finreon AG, Supervisory Board & Lecturer University of St. Gallen (HSG) | Brendan Maton, IPE
    – With Finreon ZeroCarbon® –

    The mitigation of climate change and the transition to a CO2-neutral economy is one of the biggest challenges institutional investors face in the coming years, as both the requirement to disclose the carbon footprint and the emergence of new benchmarks (e.g. CTB/PAB) reflect the political and regulatory will to systematically decarbonize investment portfolios.

    In this webinar, Dr. Ralf Seiz, founder of Finreon and lecturer at the University of St. Gallen, will present the Finreon ZeroCarbon® methodology to decarbonize efficiently portfolios:

    - CO2-neutralisation: The Finreon ZeroCarbon® innovation makes it possible not only to reduce the CO2-emissions of portfolios but to neutralize them completely
    - Low risks and costs: Decarbonisation with Finreon ZeroCarbon® allows for a high level of portfolio decarbonization with minimal tracking error impact and costs
    - Flexible use: As a “carbon hedge”, Finreon ZeroCarbon® is a highly flexible option to decarbonize any given portfolio structure (active, passive; equity, balanced etc.)

    Join us in discussing the following topics:

    - Why decarbonize portfolios?
    - What options exist to efficiently decarbonize portfolios?
    - What is the price of decarbonization?
    - What is a carbon hedge?
    - How can a carbon hedge be used to efficiently decarbonize portfolios?
    - Is it possible to fully decarbonize portfolios today?
  • Are Pan-European Logistics Investments Still Attractive Post-COVID? Recorded: May 12 2021 56 mins
    Alistair Calvert - CEO and founder, Clarion Partners Europe | Tim Wang - MD, Head of Investment Research, Clarion Partners
    The logistics sector has been red-hot, driven by robust occupier demand and strong investor interest. The shift to e-commerce accelerated dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic as people stayed home and ordered more goods online. Now with the global vaccination rollout, the end of the pandemic is finally in sight. Post-COVID, will people still buy more items online? Will logistics tenants keep taking up more distribution space?

    Alistair Calvert, CEO of Clarion Partners Europe, and Tim Wang, Ph.D., Head of Investment Research Clarion Partners, will discuss how Europe is uniquely positioned to benefit from the ongoing supply chain transformation and why logistics will continue to be an attractive property sector to invest in after the pandemic.

    Highlights will include:

    • Secular e-commerce disruption theme
    • Building of “last-mile” logistics infrastructure
    • Current leasing and pricing trends
    • Tenant preferences for asset quality and location
    • Investment opportunities across the Pan-European region

  • Biggest Bang for your Core and Value Add Real Estate Buck Recorded: May 4 2021 65 mins
    Lauren Hochfelder, Brian Niles, Toru Bando & Tony Charles, MSREI | Brendan Maton, IPE
    – Around the world in search of the best risk-adjusted returns in commercial real estate –

    The global economy is in the early stages of a sharp recovery. Inflation is a new hot topic and interest rates are on the rise. How will these macroeconomic trends impact real estate fundamentals and pricing across different regions? That’s just the cyclical side. Work-from-home, suburbanization, eCommerce, zoom, shifting shopping behaviors. How permanent are these secular shifts that we have witnessed over the past 12-18 months and what will be the impacts on each real estate sector and region?

    The combination of a strong economic recovery, some potential re-pricing in some sectors and markets, and shifting demand patterns resulting from structural changes emanating out of COVID should provide a really interesting set of core and value-add real estate investment opportunities.

    Presented by:
    – Lauren Hochfelder, Deputy Chief Investment Officer of Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing (MSREI) and Head of MSREI Americas

  • How Global is your Global Equity Fund? Recorded: Apr 27 2021 60 mins
    Laure Négiar - Portfolio Manager, Comgest | Brendan Maton, IPE
    – Exposure that reflects the future, not the past –

    The US has dominated many global funds and indices for close to a decade, and yet the opportunity set for a global investor has evolved considerably - most obviously in Asia. Have global funds kept up?

    With on-the ground research teams and three decades of experience in global stock picking, Comgest’s global strategy is navigating 2021 and beyond with over 40% exposure to Emerging Markets and Japan, as a result of the team’s bottom-up selection process. How can sustainable quality growth investors benefit from these regions whilst maintaining strong ESG credentials? Why have investors long underestimated Japan? Portfolio Manager Laure Négiar will discuss these themes in light of Comgest’s strategy, a portfolio positioned for the future, not the past.
