Climate Change and the Energy Transition
Climate change is reshaping the investment landscape. Technological, behavioral and policy trends are accelerating the global energy transition toward a low carbon economy. These trends favor clean energy over fossil fuels and are prompting investors to address the associated the risks and explore emerging opportunities.
Energy Transition Long - Short
The Energy Transition Long-Short Equity Strategy (ETLS) is a rules-based alternative investment strategy designed to capture the potential upside of a transition to a low-carbon economy. This thematic strategy is long clean energy, advanced transportation, and smart grid companies and short reserve-owning fossil fuel companies. The strategy is designed to achieve results with these characteristics:
Invests in public companies whose products and services aim to accelerate the clean-energy transition and reduce the physical, economic and social risks associated with climate change.
Alternative investing strategy employed with the objective of optimizing long-term return generation.
The strategy extends divestment (avoidance) principles to short companies whose fossil fuel products contribute to climate change and have potential for stranded asset risk.
Factor-based security selection and index management techniques incorporated to limit excessive trading and portfolio turnover.
