Climate change and the impact on pension funds

For financial advisers and employers only

The United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP26 at it’s more commonly referred to, is seen by many as our last best chance to tackle the climate emergency, which has the potential to bring about irreversible change to our planet.

In this podcast, we discuss the role of default funds in fighting climate change and how regulation, which is supporting the transition, brings challenges and opportunities for pension schemes.

To explore this topic, Tim Orton, Managing Director of Investment Solutions, is joined by Graeme Griffiths, Trustee on the Aegon Master Trust, and Hilkka Komulainen, Head of Responsible Investment at Aegon UK.
