Investors in infrastructure could lose more than half of their portfolio by 2050. How much of your investments stand to lose in the near future from physical events such as floods
Investors in infrastructure could lose more than half of their portfolio by 2050.
How much of your investments stand to lose in the near future from physical events such as floods and storms? Are you concerned about the impact of climate change on your portfolio?
The physical risks created by climate change are not limited to a distant future for investors in infrastructure, some of whom could well lose more than 50% of the value of their portfolio to physical climate risk before 2050 in the event of runaway climate change. Moreover, the average investor will also lose twice as much to extreme weather, mostly in OECD countries, compared to a low carbon scenario.
In this webinar we will discuss the impact of extreme climate events on infrastructure valuations and examine the extent of extreme climate driven physical risk in infrastructure investments and the potential concentration of such risks in the portfolio of investors in infrastructure. We show the importance of implementing more ambitious policies to cope with climate change, because, while energy transition and the alignment of economies have a cost for private investors, so does climate change! We highlight that in the absence of an energy transition towards a low carbon economy, physical risks are twice as large and that in extreme cases, portfolios with fewer assets may experience large losses up to more than half of their portfolio value.
Join us for an eye-opening webinar as we explore the urgent issue of physical climate risks faced by investors in infrastructure.
