RLAM has long advocated the need for our sector to be good asset owners and consider climate change. This means considering both how we as a manager impact the climate, as well as how the climate, and more broadly the fight against climate change, can impact us and the assets that we manage.
For the former, this means considering the carbon output of our holdings - like all asset managers, our investment holdings are the major contributor to our carbon emissions. For the latter, this means undertaking the necessary research to ensure that we understand and are aware of any risk to the value of our investment, either due to physical damage as a result of climate change, or a shift in the business environment by means of changes to legislation or technological development.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The value of investments and the income from them is not guaranteed and may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. The views expressed are the author's own and do not constitute investment advice.
