Properties – called immovable assets in French – are in the crosshairs of opportunities and risks from ESG factors. Climate change will impact certain countries, cities and street addresses unevenly. Because there is no ability for buildings to flee locations with mounting risk exposures, investors have to have a long-term view on how and when physical and economic impacts of ESG may affect a property. The good news is that investors invest in portfolios, so changing portfolio exposures to get the right balance is a winning investment strategy.
We have products and services for real estate investors to successfully implement strategies to change the overall exposures – sometimes without selling a single building.
