- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – In this edition of “ESG & Alternatives,” we want to revisit how alternative investments have progressed in the long and winding road on their ESG journey, and discuss what obstacles still lie in the way.

The publication starts with a discussion on “The Need for ESG Harmonization and Convergence,” where Frank Talsma and Iida Pöyliö from RBC Investor & Treasury Services discuss the current state of ESG investment in alternative asset classes, particularly in the Nordic region. In “Private Markets Investing Through an ESG Lens,” Olivia Muir, Head of ESG for Real Estate & Private Markets (REPM) at UBS Asset Management, explains how the complex ESG landscape has evolved and discusses the benefits and challenges of investing through an ESG lens in private markets.

In “Against Utopia,” Firmino Morgado and Filipe Bergaña from Man GLG, and Man Group’s Jason Mitchell argue that the road to Utopia ultimately leads to nowhere and emphasize “The Need for a Pragmatic Energy Transition.” Mark Nash, the Head of Fixed Income Alternatives at Jupiter Asset Management who oversees its global macro strategy, shares his insights on “Navigating the Five Macro Regimes of 2022,” as well as discusses the evolving role of ESG in macro strategies. Moving on, Miguel Zurita and Jörg Höller from AltamarCAM discuss “The Private Market’s Role in ESG Transformation,” highlighting their desire to push beyond merely playing a participatory role in the progressive adaptation to this new “green reality.

In “Secured Loans with a Strong Flavour of ESG,” Alexander Gallotti, Head of Leveraged Finance at Mandatum Asset Management, discusses the attractive features of secured loans, as well as shares more insights about their SFDR Article 9 secured loans vehicle that complements the attractive features of secured loans by having sustainable investment as its objective. Nina Jahanbin, Fredrik Langenskiöld, and Zuhair Khan of Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) then go into the details of “Applying an ESG Process to Alternative Investments.”

The publication concludes with a summary of a recently-launched “ESG Disclosure Tool for Alternative Credit” by a group of alternative asset managers and industry bodies in the private and broadly syndicated credit markets. We hope you enjoy the read of this edition of ESG & Alternatives which you can access here.
