Webinar: Temperatures are rising, can emerging markets shade themselves from the consequences | September 21, 2023
The risk of extreme weather events is increasing. Record temperatures and changing weather patterns have led to both droughts and floods in different parts of the world, as well as a loss of biodiversity, melting glaciers and rising sea levels. Extreme weather conditions are expected to have a negative impact on emerging markets, potentially affecting quality of life.
We have analysed how extreme weather events affect EM countries and have engaged with EM corporate issuers to understand how they prepare for weather risks. Will climate change become a differentiating factor in the investment performance of an EM bond portfolio?
Willem Visser, Associate Portfolio Manager Fixed Income ESG will take a closer look at what factors are pivotal to assess the impact of climate risks on EM bond portfolios.
