Sustainable Investing

Key takeaways

  • Global biodiversity continues to drop sharply. Areas of opportunity we’re watching include companies focused on reducing negative impacts, such as sustainable agriculture.
  • Too little water (drought) and too much water (storms and floods) have increased the levels of water-related financial risk. Regulation is a big factor in managing portfolios.
  • Energy transition is key to sustainable investing as the world transitions to a net-zero economy. We see opportunity in the trillions of dollars needed for funding.
