BlackRock Expands Climate Transition Offer

BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, has added to its exchange-traded fund (ETF) range with five new iShares MSCI Climate Transition Aware ETFs. The funds will ensure investors have more exposure to companies leading in the transition to a low-carbon economy with forward-looking, science-based targets that generate green revenues. “The transition to a low-carbon economy is set to spur a significant reallocation of capital as energy systems and technologies continue to evolve and develop,” said Manuela Sperandeo, BlackRock’s Europe and Middle East Head of iShares Product. “With the launch of the Climate Transition Aware range, we are expanding the choice we offer clients seeking to mitigate the investment risks and capture the opportunities from this transition.” The investment strategy will cover the US, Europe, Japan, the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU), and other parts of the world. BlackRock will draw on the MSCI Transition Aware Select Index methodology to inform its investment decision-making for the suite of funds. “Investors are increasingly looking for data and tools to help them adapt their strategies to better manage the challenges and opportunities stemming from the transition to a low-carbon economy,” said Sebastian Lieblich, Head of EMEA Index at BlackRock. “The MSCI Transition Aware Select Indexes methodology can play a central role for investors looking to factor these parameters into their decision-making.”
