UNPRI Case Study: A climate risk framework for farmland investments

Aerial view of farmland

We’re pleased to share our climate risk framework case study, as featured by UNPRI (United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment).

At the global scale, the threat posed to agriculture by climate change is a humanitarian one. It risks undermining food security, especially in regions where impacts are expected to be greatest. For investors in and managers of farmland, the problem is one of risk and reward: are the risks properly understood and are they appropriately priced?

Through this case study, we provide an overview of the acute and chronic physical risks that climate change poses to farmland and explain how our climate risk framework complements our investment process to ensure we manage these risks appropriately.

Past performance is no guarantee of future results. All investments carry a certain degree of risk, including the loss of principal. Investment objectives may not be met.

As an asset class, agricultural investments are less developed, more illiquid, and less transparent compared to traditional asset classes. Agricultural investments will be subject to risks generally associated with the ownership of real estate-related assets, including changes in economic conditions, environmental risks, the cost of and ability to obtain insurance, and risks related to leasing of properties. Certain products and services may not be available to all entities or persons.

Responsible investing incorporates Environmental Social Governance (ESG) factors that may affect exposure to issuers, sectors, industries, limiting the type and number of investment opportunities available, which could result in excluding investments that perform well.

ESG integration incorporates financially relevant ESG factors into investment research in support of portfolio management for actively managed strategies. Financial relevancy of ESG factors varies by asset class and investment strategy. Applicability of ESG factors may differ across investment strategies. ESG factors are among many factors considered in evaluating an investment decision, and unless otherwise stated in the relevant offering memorandum or prospectus, do not alter the investment guidelines, strategy or objectives.
