Webinar: Carbon Transition Risk

Climate change as a risk-management issue for investors is the focus of a free webinar, 8:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 2, hosted by the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business as part of the UBS Quant Insight Series 2020.

Maryland Smith Center for Financial Policy Director Russ Wermers and Kepos Capital Chief Investment Officer Mark Carhart will discuss risk management strategy for investors in this context.

The setup for the discussion: The transition away from carbon-intensive economic activities will take decades, but market expectations could change quickly. Positioning portfolios ahead of this transition is a timely strategy with potential for both risk and return payoffs.
