(EDHEC-Risk Climate) Attend Riccardo Rebonato's next webinar "Where is the Climate Risk Premium?"
Where is the Climate Risk Premium?
Establishing whether “green” and carbon-intensive assets carry a positive or negative risk premium matters a lot for investment managers, because it determines whether these assets act as hedges, or they add to equity risk. Unfortunately, attempts to estimate the climate risk premium empirically have met with near-insurmountable difficulties and leave the practitioner puzzled.
At this webinar, Riccardo Rebonato, Scientific Director, EDHEC-Risk Climate Impact Institute and Professor of Finance, EDHEC Business School, will explain what one may learn about the climate risk premium by employing a state-of-the-art integrated modeling approach, and discuss investment implications.
This event will be held entirely in English, on June 29, 2023, from 4 pm (CEST). To register: follow this link
Topics covered will include:
- The climate risk premium: what it is and why investors should care
- Hedging climate risk: when is it possible and when should one hedge?
- Are “green” assets hedges or do they add to equity risk?
- What is the term structure of the climate risk premium: are long- or short-dated assets more strongly affected?
- How does the climate risk premium depend on future abatement policies?
- How ‘robust’ are these results to climate uncertainties and model limitations?
- Is the market asleep at the wheel?
