Part I: Foundations of Climate Investing

Climate change is the defining threat of our time. As we accelerate toward COP 26 in Glasgow this November, join us for a webinar with our climate experts to better understand what the latest climate models can tell us about how climate risk has been priced into equity markets.

Drawing from this key paper, we examined the financial impact of climate transition risk and found that climate has increased in importance in the last two years, with potential long-term implications for understanding market behavior. Is there a “brown” discount and a “green” premium? Has this shifted over time? How can we model such risks as the world moves toward net-zero targets?

Lastly, we will examine how the MSCI Climate Paris Aligned Indexes have been designed to address climate change risks and opportunities holistically. 


  • How has climate risk been priced into equity markets? 
  • How can we model climate risk in preparation for net-zero targets? 
  • What are the Climate Paris Aligned Indexes and how can they help investors seeking a net-zero strategy?
