Deutsche Asset Management´s published their new Sustainable Finance report, which showcases how investors could profit and reduce risks from climate risk, global real estate, US renewables, the microfinance sector and the relentless march of ESG regulation.
The second Sustainable Finance report examines the value of investing in environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
Michael Lewis, Head of ESG Thematic Research, Deutsche AM, said: “ESG investing is gathering momentum. Our report shows how it has moved on from risk management and downside protection towards more positive motivations for ESG investing.”
The Sustainable Finance report features five main articles, examining key trends including:
- The growth of ESG assets and how the regulatory environment is affecting ESG investing.
- Measures to address climate risk – examining physical and regulatory risks arising from climate change and how the low-carbon transition is a major investment opportunity.
- US renewable energy sector – a sector strongly relevant for investors’ search for yield.
- Sustainable real estate – one of the asset classes with the strongest reasons for, and benefits from, incorporating sustainability.
- Microfinance sector and investment diversification. Deutsche AM celebrates 20 years of supporting microfinance investment vehicles.
