mallowstreet University Digital Roundtable: Discovering Investment Opportunities within Climate Transition

The threat of continued Climate Change presents very real financial risks to investment portfolios, to both existing assets as well as future investments. As the investable landscape continues to grow, so do the opportunities to commit capital into asset classes which are supporting the necessary climate transition.

So where are the opportunities to make a positive impact, without compromising return? During this morning event, Russell Investments will discuss how these opportunities can be found in Private Market asset classes. This ever-growing sector can generate a compelling risk / return profile, which can be challenging to find in a late-cycle environment, whilst enabling you to have greater influence over the environmental and social impact of the portfolio. 

This morning session is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) and is exclusively for pension fund decision makers.
