Candriam Climate Action: Wie kann man als Anleger den Klimawandel bekämpfen?

Das Pariser Abkommen führte zu einem globalen Konsens, in dem das Ziel und die Modalitäten zur Vermeidung einer Erwärmung über 2 Grad hinaus festgelegt wurden. Die Europäische Union hat sich ihrerseits verpflichtet, bis 2050 die Klimaneutralität zu erreichen. Der Candriam SRI Equities Climate Action Fund konzentriert sich darauf, Unternehmen bei der Entwicklung von Lösungen für den Klimawandel zu unterstützen. Diese Unternehmen zeichnen sich dadurch aus, dass sie ihre Geschäftsmodelle auf ein 2-Grad-Ziel hin umstellen oder Lösungen anbieten, die es anderen Unternehmen ermöglichen, dieses Ziel zu erreichen.

Warum ESG Kriterien im Fixed Income Bereich immer wichtiger werden

Der Markt für nachhaltiges Investieren wächst enorm, nicht nur für Aktien-Investments, sondern verstärkt auch für Fixed Income Investoren. Für Credit Suisse Asset Management hat das Thema Nachhaltigkeit über alle Anlagebereiche hinweg einen gleich hohen Stellenwert. Doch was gibt es im Vergleich zu Aktien beim Thema Fixed Income und Nachhaltigkeit zu beachten? Wo liegt der Fokus der Investoren und sieht es auf der Index-Seite aus?

Dominik Scheck, Leiter ESG, Credit Suisse Asset Management

From low carbon industries to green tech, how to accompany also sectors in transition?

The question of the diversity of portfolios in asset management is key, both financially and in responding to the climate challenge. Our approach makes it possible to limit sectoral biases by offering a differentiated analysis of companies according to the climate risks and challenges they face. We thus distinguish 4 investment pockets in our climate portfolio: disruptive technologies, efficiency solutions, low carbon impact sector and energy producers. The implementation of this strategy is compatible with carbon neutrality and the philosophy of active management

How microfinance investments can boost the growth in developing countries: the Silk road experience

Microfinance has always been decorrelated from the volatility of the world of finance and macroeconomic risks.  In developing regions, like the countries along the Silk Road, micro and SMEs are catching new opportunities offered by new post-crisis scenarios thanks to their flexibility, resilience and capability to adapt. These countries’ economy is based on sectors which never completely stopped during the lockdowns and they are facing a digital transformation which will further help their restart.

Vittorio Volpi, Chairman of the Supervisory Board – Mikro Kapital

Is impact investing the future of sustainable investment?


At the high rate of PRI signatories, soon there will be no non-responsible investors left! The remaining scepticals are now eager to join the movement after seeing the impressive inflows on ESG funds, and like Mr. Jourdain, everyone claims they had a responsible investment approach before knowing what it was. Obviously, this is very far from the truth because there is no shared definition of SRI: within it, practices as diverse as exclusion, shareholder engagement or thematic investment coexist. Among them, a trend is emerging: that of impact investing. In our view, this trend is not just one among others, but the only SRI approach.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Hervé Guez, CIO of Equities and Fixed Income for Mirova

Dialogue & engagement: value creation in the small and midcap universe

The universe of European small and mid-caps is very broad and diversified, with a significant number of family-owned companies. The availability and quality of non-financial data does unfortunately not permit a holistic analysis of the risks and opportunities presented by these companies. In order to identify the champions of tomorrow, dialogue and direct engagement with companies and their management is essential to understand their business models and generate long-term value for all stakeholders.

Nicolas Jacob, Head of ESG Research at ODDO BHF Asset Management

A road to ESG integration: Walking the Talk

ESG approach with rating agencies have had clear positives, with a very systematic approach easy to implement on a large cohorts of stocks

But, the reality shows that this approach by exclusion has been narrowing the universe of investible names, there is a real data dispersion between providers on recommendations with data overload, that after years of good performance it is often now missing dynamic changes and additional performance is not there, that the relevance of KPI is heterogeneous. For this reason we believe there is a need to move towards ESG integration with a bottom up perspective and a financial impact analysis.
