    AIGCC, FTSE Russell, EY, Cathay Financial Holdings
    The Asia Investor Group on Climate Change (AIGCC) and FTSE Russell are pleased to host a webinar to discuss the findings from the report ‘Building on the base: TCFD Disclosure in Asia’, the first comprehensive guide developed by investors to look at climate change reporting by publically listed companies in Asia against the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD).

    AIGCC worked with EY and FTSE Russell to look at current levels of reporting by Asian companies in key industry sectors and across major markets in the region. It draws upon previously unpublished data analysis of corporate reporting on climate change and is the first report to benchmark performance against the TCFD for the region.

    This guide outlines the expectations that investors have of listed companies on their climate disclosure and is designed to provide a practical tool for investors as they work in partnership with their investee companies in Asia.

  • Examining Factors and Factor Allocation via Analytics Plus Nov 28 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Marlies van Boven, managing director research & analytics. Vera Caddy, senior research analyst, FTSE Russell.
    Factors and factor investing continues to be the most popular index-based method of improving portfolio risk adjusted returns.
    But how should clients assess the impact of single and multi-factors indexes on their portfolios? How are return-profiles impacted by factor inclusion and other common smart beta strategies? Should clients routinely consider their overall underlying factor allocation? And how should factor allocation be assessed?
    Join Marlies van Boven, managing director Research & Analytics and Vera Caddy, senior research analyst, FTSE Russell as they demonstrate how the impact of factors can be assessed in real-time via Analytics Plus, FTSE Russell’s propitiatory smart beta and factor assessment tool.

  • Green Taxonomies and Investing in Environmental Opportunities Recorded: Mar 20 2018 63 mins
    Dan Carson, Head of Green Solutions, FTSE Russell; Brendan Maton, IPE
    As sustainable investing moves into the mainstream of institutional investing many investors may be unsure why this once niche strand of portfolio construction has risen so rapidly in the rankings of investor consideration. Is it driven by values, global policy, or is it really about a pure investment rationale; enhancing returns and minimising risk? Or a mixture of all three?

    Join Dan Carson, Head of Green Solutions at FTSE Russell as he seeks to elaborate on some of the issues and drivers that have led to the increased popularity of sustainable investing; explaining why green taxonomies are important and how FTSE Russell’s Green Revenues data model can help asset owners identify the companies that are engaged in the global transition to a green economy.

    Dan will go on to demonstrate how Green Revenues data is used within index construction and how asset owners have successfully used sustainability data and smart beta to build index solutions that eloquently combine risk premia with varying degrees of sustainable preference or parameters.

    - Dan Carson, Head of Green Solutions, FTSE Russell
