  • Deutsche AM puts its money on measurement of physical climate risk

    first_imgIn a statement, the asset manager said it would be able to integrate a company’s physical climate risk equity score within new investment products, and assess the implications of climate events for individual companies in its portfolios. The move backs up Deutsche Asset Management CEO Nicolas Moreau’s previously expressed view that investors have not been taking seriously enough the physical impacts of climate change, and focussing too much on the potential repricing of economic assets.More recently, Moreau said natural disasters such as the hurricanes making landfall in the US this year “discredit” the investment industry’s current approach to accounting for climate change risk.The focus on transition risk resulted in “a false sense of comfort” that the investment implications of climate risk, while substantial, would arise in the long-term, according to Moreau.Physical disruption from hurricanes or floods posed a “clear and present danger”, he argued. Also, scientists believed that stronger and more frequent extreme weather events would be a feature for many years to come even if greenhouse gas emissions fell to zero tomorrow, he said.“Investment managers need to contend with the physical aspects of climate risk with some urgency,” said Moreau.Companies need to disclose their related risk exposures, but investors should not wait for them to do so and also needed to seek alternative sources of information, he said.This would include information from the mapping of corporate facilities’ physical location as Four Twenty Seven does. Satellite imagery of Hurricane Harvey, one of three Category 4 hurricanes to make landfall in the US in 2017, a new record Deutsche Asset Management is set to consider companies’ exposure to catastrophic climate events as part of its investment decision-making.Deutsche developed the new approach with the help of California-based climate intelligence advisory firm Four Twenty Seven. The latter has mapped the physical locations of more than 1m corporate facilities globally and uses scientific models to assess the likelihood of them being affected by climate hazards such as heatwaves, floods and cyclones.Deutsche said it was the first time this had been done for investment purposes, and it provided a method of calculation for individual companies’ exposure to catastrophic events.The approach has been developed for measuring physical climate risk in equity portfolios.last_img read more

  • Red Alert over Messi deal as father buys house in Milan

    first_img Loading… Earlier this month Marco Tronchetti, the chief exec of Inter’s sponsors Pirelli, declared they’d be willing to help the club fund a move for Messi. Tronchetti saids that while Pirelli can’t make “significant” investment with ongoing financial uncertainty posed by the coronavirus crisis, the firm could certainly aid the cause in going after Messi – but warned that club chief Steven Zhang had to “make an effort”. “Honestly, at a time like this, we’re unable to invest in sports more than we are, between Formula 1, the America’s Cup and Inter,” he told Gr Parlamento.

We can help, but we can’t do anything significant.” Messi’s current deal with Barca expires in less than 12 months.

Jorge Messi, reports Gazzetta dello Sport, is purchasing a house in the Porta Nuova district in Milan with plans to move to Italy this year. This has triggered off a red alert among Italian clubs and fans alike who believe that the acquisition is a clue that Barcelona’s most prized talisman is about to finally shift base and will of course love to have his father with him in Milan.
