BEYOND GREEN BONDS
ENABLING TRANSFORMATION AT THE CORE
Climate change is a systemic risk and it is part of our fiduciary duty, as responsible investors, to integrate it in our investment decision processes. But the transition also offers many opportunities which we should fully seize.
Ophélie Mortier, Responsible Investment Strategist at DPAM
FINANCING THE ENERGY TRANSITION WHILST GENERATING ALPHA
Climate change offers a large array of opportunities for a global long-term investor.
Firstly, proactive climate change mitigation and protection offers a real competitive advantage for the first movers. They benefit not only from the shift in consumption behaviour, but also from higher resource-efficiency and reduced regulatory risk.
Secondly, the transition requires huge investments in infrastructure, transport, energy, etc. The fixed income market is an important financial leverage, which should be used by investors to finance the real economy.
Green bonds are part of the solution. They give investors the necessary tools to finance the low-carbon economy, but more is needed to accelerate the transition. Several companies are already offering dedicated solutions for a more energy-efficient, low-carbon economy.
Let’s explore the opportunities beyond green bonds:
An actively managed aggregate fixed income fund that invests in a proprietary global investment universe that unifies climate change committed issuers without compromising the risk allocation nor the return potential.
Our investment scope goes beyond green bonds and includes companies and governments that actively challenge climate risks and enable solutions necessary to make the transition away from a high carbon economy a success.
An unbiased and robust bond portfolio that can weather various market environments. Going green should not mean compromising on expected returns or altering the risk profile of a more traditional fixed income investor.
Dynamic risk diversification and a research-driven investment process that leverages the experience of our seasoned buy-side credit analysts, sustainability and portfolio management teams are DPAM’s key recipe to meet these objectives.
All issuers are screened for compliance with international sustainability norms, possible involvement in controversies and on sector-based Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria to avoid issuers with relatively elevated sustainability risks. Our three types of investments: green bonds, climate challengers and climate enablers must also fit our proprietary EMERALD themes.
In a next step, issuers are also analysed on a more fundamental basis to ensure that the investment value on offer is not at risk. DPAM’s Responsible Investment Competence Centre (RICC) continuously interacts with the buy-side credit analysts to ensure an effective integration of material ESG factors into the fundamental analysis.
