    Climate risk in private real estate portfolios: What’s the exposure?

    As a long-term asset class, private real estate is especially vulnerable to climate-related events, such as water stress, hurricanes and flooding.

    Banking on ESG: Examining the financial relevance of ESG to banks

    Recent studies by MSCI ESG Research have shown an historical link between environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and stronger corporate financial performance.

    Climate change and climate risk: An index perspective

    A transition to a low-carbon economy could reduce demand for carbon-intensive products and services in favor of low-/zero-carbon counterparts. This migration in demand could also alter the risk-return profile — not only of individual companies but of some entire industries.

    Factor allocation to asset allocation

    Asset-allocation approaches have evolved from the traditional 60/40 split to the recent adoption of risk, rather than capital, budgeting across asset classes. However, asset-class buckets are not always clear-cut risk and return drivers. We present a factor-based asset-allocation framework to help investors who have begun to look through asset classes to factors — the underlying drivers of risk and returns.
