Session 1 - Developments in sustainable equity investing globally and in emerging markets
Lead Portfolio Manager, Global Sustainable Equity
Nomura Asset Management
Developments in sustainable investing
This talk will provide an in-depth focus on current sustainable issues and challenges within global equity and, as the focus shifts to impact, what that means in practice.
Vice President and Lead Portfolio Manager, Emerging Markets Strategies
Rewiring supply chains to benefit Emerging Markets excluding China
With deglobalization, ongoing trade tensions and lingering impacts of the pandemic, the global supply chain continues to sputter and break down. Efforts to reduce dependency on China has meant investing more in trade diversification. However, rewiring will be challenging, slow and expensive. While China will hold many competitive advantages in manufacturing, EM excluding China will be the key beneficiary of supply chain diversification. What are the responsible investment implications for this transition?
Session 2: Topical investments: renewable energy and agriculture
Portfolio Manager Infrastructure
Renewable energy: the value of platform investment
In a maturing renewable energy market in Europe platform investments blended with traditional project investments can be a prudent fund strategy in order to diversify the risk for investors while enhancing potential returns. This talk will explain how the different risks can be managed and the attractive upside for investors.
Sustainable Investment Opportunities in Agriculture
How can institutional investors achieve the benefits of investing in agriculture while supporting the continued development of a sustainable food and fiber system? This talk will discuss the ESG and sustainability risks and opportunities within agriculture and the investment strategy considerations for institutional investors evaluating an allocation to the asset class.
