A new survey of 200 global institutional investors has found that a majority (56%) of respondents plan to increase their investment allocations to the climate transition. According to asset manager BlackRock’s ‘Global Transition Investor Survey 2023’, 46% of the surveyed investors, who collectively manage US$8.7 trillion in assets, also said that navigating the transition is their most important investment priority over the next three years. Fifty-six percent indicated a preference for a whole portfolio approach to investing in the transition, compared to 41% noting a preference for an asset class by asset class approach. While respondents highlighted product offerings gaps across fixed income and emerging markets, others cited challenges with transition allocations, such as tracking key performance indicators. Sixty percent of institutional investors said they are looking to work with asset managers with strong research capabilities.
