In September 2007 Schroder launched its ISF Global Climate Change Equity Fund, which is based in Luxembourg and currently only available to European investors. On the firm’s Web site ( a document explains why climate change is likely to be one of the major investment themes of the next 20 years:

o Legislation. Across the globe, governments and world agencies are passing climate change-related laws that will significantly impact companies and industries.

o Investment. Huge investment will be needed to tackle the issue, such as the estimated $20 trillion to be spent globally on new power generation infrastructure by 2030.

o Competition. The opportunities and pressures created by efforts to tackle climate change are set to change the global corporate landscape. Some of today’s companies will survive, but they will be joined by new names and innovations. This will create opportunities for new market leaders to emerge. GE CEO Jeff Immelt believes that “Investing in technology to solve big challenges like climate change can become a competitive advantage.”
