October 18, 2022

Strandvagen 7A, Stockholm

Purpose

This conference, conducted in English, will explore a range of sustainable/Impactful/ESG compliant
investment options, both public and private, looking at how these can be integrated into the investment
management processes of Swedish and other Nordic pension funds and other institutional investors. We
also aim to consider issues such as the impact of regulatory and geopolitical pressures, transparency,
benchmarks, reporting, technology and performance measurement as well as other local investment
considerations.

The climate case for investing in EMD

Climate standards and policies in emerging markets are, on a whole, lagging many developed markets. However, this is not a reason not to invest. Emerging markets are crucial to the low carbon transition, and they are also where many of the biggest climate opportunities can be found. For investors looking to make a climate impact, emerging markets are not to be ignored.

Decarbonising portfolios; a sovereigns approach?​

Why focus on government bonds?
•    Governments set the rules and regulations that companies and individuals follow
•    Without their support and investment, the world will not be able to tackle its most pressing problems – climate change in particular. 
How might fixed income investors construct government bond portfolios in a way that has biggest possible impact in the fight against climate change? 
•     Focus to be most impactful 
•    climate-focused sovereign debt portfolio shouldn’t focus exclusively on green bonds.
