Integrating climate constraints and opportunities into the Investment Decision Process

Strategic Climate Solutions across Ortec Finance

Climate change is increasingly recognised as a key systemic risk that investors need to address as part of their fiduciary duty and broader responsibilities. To this end, Ortec Finance’s Strategic Climate Solutions team integrates responsible investment data and methodologies into mainstream financial technology and solutions. We develop applications for climate integration with regard to our economic scenarios generator as well as to our ALM, risk monitoring, and performance attribution tools. These will enable you to integrate climate throughout your investment process.

Climate change is increasingly recognised as a key systemic risk that investors need to address as part of their fiduciary duty and broader responsibilities as responsible investors. To support this, Ortec Finance’s Strategic Climate Solutions team integrates responsible investment data and methodologies into mainstream financial technology and solutions. These applications support our bespoke strategic investment advisory services.

As Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England and Chairman of the Financial Stability Board, put it so clearly, “Once climate change becomes a defining issue for financial stability, it may already be too late”. Climate-related risks may manifest as part of a potentially abrupt transition to a low-carbon economy or through physical impact by increased exposure and lack of resilience to observed climate changes, including for example an increase in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events. Likely, it will be some combination of the two.

Climate-related risks and opportunities therefore require sound management. Ortec Finance has several concrete applications for climate integration under development with regard to its economic scenarios generator as well as to its ALM, risk monitoring, and performance attribution tools. These applications will enable you to integrate climate throughout your investment process. You will also be able to respond to existing and potentially new climate-related regulation, including reporting along the lines of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures.

We are fully aware that this exciting venture will entail a lot of pioneering and deep learning, and we look forward to working closely with our clients and the research community worldwide to develop this part of our business.
