Portfolio Opportunities & Material Financial Risks

Why Smart Investors Price in Deforestation Risks

From portfolio managers to banks, leading financial institutions including the Norwegian Government Pension Fund and CalPERS are starting to price into their investment and asset allocation strategies material financial risks caused by climate changes and subsequent deforestation-related externalities. 

Why? Because these deforestation problems are affecting the Food, Forests, Financials, Energy, Consumer Staples, and other major sectors of the global economy. Deforestation risk is sector and style agnostic; it hits large-cap, small-cap, emerging markets, and Fortune 500 companies, and more.

Equity and credit analysts, portfolio managers, and bankers are invited to attend to learn about these material risks and opportunities associated with deforestation. You will learn how the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures has incorporated deforestation risk into its toolkit. Be ahead of the curve; learn how you can address these risks in your investment activities. Participate in the robust Q & A session following the speakers’ roundtable and stay for the complimentary refreshments afterwards.
