Presentation: Climate transition, to be on the right side of change

Our best efforts to avert the climate breakdown and an existential crisis lie in ensuring the global emissions are aligned with a 1.5°C pathway. We must act now, there is an urgent need to significantly reallocate investments in order to reduce global warming. We believe that companies orientating their business models for a lower-carbon, warmer world are best placed to outperform the wider market over the long term. Our Climate Transition Equity Fund is a concentrated, high performing, and high conviction portfolio that seeks to address the climate trend and associated market inefficiencies.
