    It has now been 30 years since the IPCC issued its first warnings on the impact of climate change and many governments pledged to address these issues over 10 years ago. While growing political consensus on the need to achieve carbon neutrality is a fact, and although a rising number of countries have committed to supporting this goal, it is often unclear how these pledges will materialize.

    Allocation Views: Simplify the problem—A tighter focus

    2022-04-08T13:07:00Z By Franklin Templeton

    It has been an eventful start to the year. A significant rotation in equity market leadership in the early part of 2022’s first quarter saw the prospects for growth stocks derailed. This was followed by the shocking outbreak of war in Ukraine, adding new complexity to established geopolitical uncertainties—and all set against a backdrop of slowing economic activity, as well as inflation that was both persistent and troublesome.

    How to think about investing in China today

    2022-04-07T15:19:00Z By Capital Group

    Despite well-publicised moves to restructure its economy over the past few years, China remains a key investment destination due to the attraction of its enormous domestic market. And as the world’s second-largest economy, China is also deeply interconnected with the global economy in manufacturing supply chains and is increasingly a large portion of multinational corporate revenues. Consequently, understanding and navigating the complexities of China for both domestic and international investing has never been more important.

    Shifts & Narratives #16 - Investing in a fragmented world

    2022-04-06T11:50:00Z By Amundi Asset Management

    Over the past three years – well before the Covid-19 crisis – we have been arguing for a macro-financial regime shift, initially driven by the retreat of global trade as the main driver of global growth. The Covid-19 crisis has acted as a trend accelerator due to its de-globalisation footprint and implied supply-chain bottlenecks. Many growth engines have been re-shored, while the unified central bank model has ended.

    Over a month has passed since the start of the conflict in Ukraine and, following the initial volatility swings across all segments, markets have been more constructive in the past few weeks. Rates have drifted higher, reaching 2.5% for US 10 year Treasuries, amid expectations of more aggressive monetary action. Equities are returning to pre-conflict levels, while commodities are still volatile but running cooler overall.

    2022-03-30T15:22:00Z By Capital Group

    Climate change is forcing investors to evaluate two new types of risk: transition risk, the cost of transitioning to low-carbon operations, and physical risk, the cost of increased drought, floods, severe weather, and a rising sea level. Water stress is one of the most pronounced physical risks from climate change that investors must consider.
