Where in the past risk mitigation and performance were the clear key drivers for investors, this time around investors’ climate strategies are equally about creating real change and driving the economic transition.

Does this signal the start of a seismic shift to performance being measured not solely in terms of returns but also in terms of environmental and social impact?

While implementation approaches vary, consensus is building that traditional benchmarks (and the implicit tracking error) won’t be sufficient and there is a growing acceptance that new benchmarks are needed.

Divestment is not a preferred strategy: asset stewardship and engagement are, alongside explicit climate criteria and climate-themed management.

As investors move forward with their decarbonisation targets, all major asset classes will be impacted, potentially transforming the shape and composition of investor portfolios across the world.
