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?
