Embedding climate in scenario analysis for strategic investment decision making
Ortec Finance Strategic Climate Solutions hosted a seminar on 21 November, 2018 in Toronto, Canada. The seminar focused on Ortec Finance’s climate-savvy scenarios sets & balance sheet simulation. This one-of-a-kind tool helps client integrate quantified risks and opportunities associated with climate change into traditional forward-looking financial scenarios sets that drive strategic investment decision-making.
During the seminar, Lisa Eichler, Head of Climate Solutions and Hens Steehouwer, Head of Research, provided the main findings of our latest research and analysis that we carried out together with leading academic institutions and several global pension funds and insurance companies. The research focusses on the impact of climate change on financial markets and pension fund objectives and provides answers to questions like:
- Is your investment strategy climate change proof across different global warming pathways?
- How to conduct scenario analysis taking global warming pathways into account and how this affects your strategic asset allocation?
- Does sea level rise affect my funding ratio in 2035?
The seminar also updated the attendees on the latest thought leadership, state-of-the-art financial modelling and use cases for embedding physical and transition climate-related risks into strategic investment decision making. The attendees received the first-hand information from one of our pioneering clients, Matthew Zhao, CFA, CAIA, FRM - Portfolio Manager at OPTrust.
