Climate-aware Buy and Maintain

Resilient credit strategies for a new era.

What is climate-aware buy and maintain credit?

Our climate-aware buy and maintain credit strategy is designed to benefit from the climate transition by understanding how the physical risks of climate change and the political and regulatory momentum around the issue will impact the value of credit investments over time.

We base our strategy around three core objectives: Capital preservation, climate alignment and credit return and build our portfolios using a maturity-based approach to climate-risk, with clear objectives over short- to long-term time horizons.

Credit investors must act to adapt to this new reality, and we have the tools to help them do it.

Why consider investing in climate-aware buy and maintain?

Institutional investors often have a long-term focus, aiming to build resilience both for today and for decades to come. That has made climate-aware investing an inescapable part of portfolio construction.

Long-term credit forms the core of buy and maintain strategies and as an asset class has a natural alignment with the time horizon over which climate-related risks can materialise. What you invest in today should deliver resilience, both by allaying those risks and fostering a successful transition to a low-carbon economy.

One of the key pillars of our approach is the inclusion of specific climate-related objectives that reflect our clients’ priorities and requirements. The goal is a tailored solution that can help protect portfolios against the risks, fulfil regulatory obligations and meet financial objectives – all while positively contributing to the climate transition.
