The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested.
Whether it’s the rising number and intensity of hurricanes or floods, forest fires or droughts, it’s increasingly untenable to ignore the causes and consequences of climate change.
Much as the coronavirus pandemic has highlighted how interconnected our economic prospects are with the health of society, the effects of rising global temperatures demonstrate our dependence too on the health of the planet.
As policymakers grapple with how to ensure society becomes more resilient to challenges like the pandemic, we believe investors should consider how companies can play a part. We believe those that provide solutions to the most pressing global challenges stand to not only deliver a positive impact, but also be financially successful.
