The Six Key Themes for 2021

Investment has Evolved. Will You?

Looking Ahead to COP26:
  • With COP26 looming large in November, rising shareholder pressure, a continued lack of data clarity and the conversation around divestment gathering momentum; ESG has become the number 1 issue for the entire investment community. The mobilisation of Public & Private Finance, and the inclusion of ESG in every investment decision, will be essential for investment performance in the future.
The Evolving Global Policy, Regulation and Trade Landscape :
  • Looking to the investment horizon, we anticipate the US Biden administration to advocate further ESG integration through the creation of a regulatory environment that is favourable to greater reporting, disclosure, and shareholder resolutions surrounding ESG issues. This will bring the US further in line with Europe on ESG.
Shareholder Engagement, Activism, Resolutions and Proxy Voting:
  • Greater alignment on data disclosure, international reporting standards, and taxonomy has converged research methodologies and enabled mainstream investors to assess risks and opportunities through the lens of ESG. Opportunities for differentiation arise through shareholder engagement that delivers positive transition ESG alignment and best practices.

Pledges, Alliances and Coalitions – Making Public Commitments for Action:
  • In Europe, and with increasing propensity in North America, investors are announcing public commitments on their 20XX Net Zero targets. Meanwhile, the impetus to join ‘action-orientated’ investor, corporate, or asset owner affiliations has become an important strategy.
“Impact”: Developing Metrics and Defining Intent:
  • Should impact go beyond metrics and encompass intent? Mainstream clients are increasingly moving towards incorporating impact targets within initial investment philosophy. We will dissect the ‘intent’ question alongside the pursuit for impact (real-world outcome) data through new disclosure standards, regulation and data mining.
Data Analysis, Ai, Machine Learning and Data Mining:
  • The increase of more advanced data mining and technology-aided spatial analysis as tools will enhance disclosed information, yet the useability of alternative sources still needs to convince mainstream investors.
