Investors are increasingly aware of ESG and Low Carbon integration in equity portfolio construction. Still, there is a debate in the industry on how to address this goal in an effective way. One of the most widely discussed topics is the idea that in addition to its good financial qualities, an ESG portfolio is also liable to outperform the market in terms of risk-adjusted performance. As such, a large number of strategy providers have presented Low Carbon strategies as benefitting from a Carbon factor effect.
In this webinar, we examine whether there is a Carbon factor with a significant risk premium and whether mixing ESG/Low Carbon objectives with financial objectives adds value to performance; questions on the veritable impact of Low Carbon financial strategies on the real economy are also addressed.
Topics covered include:
- Is carbon a rewarded factor?
- Is there a benefit to using carbon scores to construct portfolios? Do carbon scores allow an investor to be smart?
- Does a low carbon portfolio help to decarbonise the real economy?
