The climate transition and its risks for investors
There has never been more focus on the ramifications of climate change and yet it seems that the investment industry is not acting swiftly or definitively enough to address them. This month we chat to Tim Hodgson, Co-head of the Thinking Ahead Institute (TAI), and Jeff Chee, who is the Global Head of Portfolio Strategy at WTW about the climate transition and its risks for investors.
As we step into creativity, we also chat to Susanna Basso, Creative Director of Climate Culture, about the power of storytelling to drive climate action and shift culture.

Bonus: Global Pensions Asset Study 2022
The Global Pension Assets Study estimates global pension fund assets across 22 major pension markets (the P22). These geographies now total a record US$56.6 trillion in pension assets and account for 76% of the GDP of these economies. The study, conducted by WTW and the Thinking Ahead Institute since the 1990s, includes an analysis of the seven largest markets (the P7): Australia, Canada, Japan, Netherlands, Switzerland, UK and US comprise 92% of total pension assets, unchanged from the previous year.
