GOING FOSSIL FREE: Lessons for Investors, Endowments & Advisors

How to Build a Stronger, Diversified Portfolio and Dramatically Reduce Exposure to Fossil-Fuel Risk

How much of your investment portfolio could be stronger with less exposure to fossil fuel investments? Could you lessen risk and enhance return by going fossil free?

Since 2011, the global energy sector has diverged from the S & P 500 for the first time in a decade, and dramatically lagged the
S & P 500. The Coal Index (KOL) is down 28% since late 2011, and the Oil & Gas Index (BGR) is down 8% as well. The
S & P/TruCost Carbon-Efficient Index, however, has outperformed since inception in 2011.

Many institutional asset managers have invested in companies whose entire value is derived from extracting carbon-based fuels, thereby creating pollution and tremendous financial risk. These investments are subject to severe future risk whereby assets could become stranded and could even become liabilities.

Join HIP Investor for this free webinar with leading industry experts as we highlight potential downside risk and financial losses, as well as how to optimize for upside potential by identifying possible “stranded assets” and fossil-fuel exposure.

Attendees will receive HIP Investor’s complimentary whitepaper on “Resilient Portfolios and Fossil-Free Pensions” co-authored by HIP Investor and Go
