Energy transition – An area full of opportunities (video)

Amid pervasive evidence of environmental disasters, pressure to meet the Paris Accord targets on the global temperature rise and growing demand from expanding and wealthier populations, the appetite for energy is set to increase massively, more and more so for clean energy. In this video, senior portfolio managers Edward Lees and Ulrik Fugmann point out that trillions of US dollars will have to be spent on renewable energy – producing it, making it more efficient, improving the technology and transportation, etc. Fortunately, energy transition is an area full of innovation and economic solutions, creating a range of attractive opportunities for investors.

Any views expressed here are those of the author as of the date of publication, are based on available information, and are subject to change without notice. Individual portfolio management teams may hold different views and may take different investment decisions for different clients.

The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns.

Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions).

Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
