Attend the conference and you will understand how solar became so successful and why it will dominate the power sector in the 21st century.

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?

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

Léa Dunand-Chatellet, Head of the Responsible Investment department - DNCA

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.
