A different approach to sustainable investing
The sustainability transitions are not only going to have massive impacts on our environment and our societies, they are also going to dramatically change investing. We need to think differently. Its partly a longer term approach, but we also need to become more thematic, recognising that there is no one simple pain free solution that fixes all of our problems.
The challenges and their solutions are complex and interconnected. We need to change how we make investment decisions, what outcomes we are hoping to achieve, what consequences might arise from our investment, how we engage with the companies we are invested in an with our financial stakeholders, how we communicate our objectives, and where we expect future financial returns to come from. Its easy to deliver say low carbon portfolios, but will that really make a difference in the real world. Plus, there is a real risk that a disorderly climate transition will result in materially lower financial returns. And these issues apply across all investments, in your own business, in funds, in public and private equity, and in debt.
This all means we need to think more deeply about the risks, and what returns we should expect from our new investments, impacting our ability to reward our investors, fund our retirement, pay for our children's education, and preserve and maintain our capital.
The outcome is not yet fixed. Investors can play a part in profitably building a better future, but we need to start now. Doing the same thing and expecting a better outcome is no longer an option.
