JSS Sustainable Asset Management is pleased to launch a new climate investment strategy that taps into the vast opportunities arising from the global transition to a low-carbon future. The JSS Sustainable Equity – Global Climate 2035 fund aims to fully harness the power of the climate revolution, and is aligned with JSS Sustainable Asset Management’s ambitions to become carbon-neutral by 2035.
In this inevitable shift towards cleaner societies and economies, there will be many winners and losers. As investors, it is crucial to ensure that one’s portfolios are “future-proof” – meaning they are able to not only withstand disruptions caused by the energy transition, but are also well-positioned to benefit from investing in climate-related transformational trends.
The JSS Sustainable Equity – Global Climate 2035 fund invests globally in: Green Champions –  companies with innovative solutions that enable the reduction of carbon emissions, as well as Climate Pledgers – companies that are cutting their own emissions and are already on a trajectory aligned with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to below 2°C. Overall, the portfolio aims to have a trajectory that is lower than 2°C, a minimum of 20% of “green” revenues, while avoiding investments in stranded assets.
The distinctive investment strategy benefits from JSS Sustainable Asset Management’s longstanding sustainable investing expertise, as well as a proprietary Climate Engine. The framework, developed in-house, employs a forward-looking approach to project a company’s climate temperature scenario path, as well as to evaluate a company’s revenue exposure to green solutions. This combination allows the Fund to identify companies that are well-placed to gain from long-term structural trends, and helps it to build solid investment cases.
The JSS Sustainable Equity – Global Climate 2035 fund is evolved from and builds on the success of the existing Sustainable Equity Global strategy. The Fund is managed by Andreas Nigg, Barbara Janosi and Alban Cousin, three experienced investment professionals with long track records in the industry.
