Investing in upside potential
Sustainability means something different for everyone. For investors, you've probably heard the term being thrown around a lot recently as companies begin to prioritise the net carbon emission targets. But when considering a company's sustainability, there are a few more factors that need to be taken into account.
For Pete Robinson, head of investment strategy, fixed income at CIP Asset Management, sustainability and ESG are not new concerns, and rather have been crucial in determining whether companies in the private market will be able to succeed long term. According to Robinson, if a private business is not sustainable, there is very limited upside for investors and a lot of downside potential.
In this video, Robinson explains why sustainable investing can lead investors to attractive yield, where to find opportunities in the private market, and also discusses the downside risk for companies that are failing to integrate ESG practices, particularly in the coal and gas market.
CIP Asset Management aim to provide diversified sources of income by seeking opportunities in both the public and private sectors, whilst maintaining capital stability. For further insights, please visit our website.
