Thursday, December 3, 2020, 11:20 AM - 11:35 AM | Passive Investing 2020: Addressing Climate Change in Investment Portfolios

This session discusses the third annual DWS sponsored CREATE-Research paper that examines the relevance of passive strategies for pension funds. This year the study focused on climate risk and highlighted how 65% of 130 pension funds globally plan to increase their climate-linked passive allocations. Points to consider include:

  • Understanding the 2020 survey results in light of the current environment;
  • Suppressing the curve on greenhouse gas emissions: What are the key drivers and blockers?
  • Passive strategies anchored in a core portfolio: How will the recent market volatility affect passive funds?
