Making an impact in emerging markets

In a recent article in Pensions Expert, SECOR’s Erik Davey, comments on impact investment strategies in emerging markets.

Erik Davey, director for UK and Europe at Secor Asset Management, says emerging markets can be a rewarding area for impact strategies as they are often commodity-intensive and high-growth economies.

“Both of these characteristics mean they will play an important role in how the world addresses climate change and many other responsible investing priorities,” he notes.

“Efficiently consuming commodities and transitioning to those that have a positive impact on the environment will be important elements of the transition to a low-carbon economy, and a great deal of this will need to be achieved in emerging economies.”
