Special Issue on Climate Change Implications for the Asset Management Industry, The Journal of Alternative Investments (JAI)


Climate change is an important global concern. Future increases in average temperatures and the associated effects on the environment will likely affect asset prices. What are the implications for investment managers? How should they deal with the financial risks arising from climate change in their portfolios? As investors become more socially responsible and aware of the impacts of climate change, how should fund managers react? The Journal of Alternative Investments (JAI) will publish a special issue to answer these questions. Short articles (with 5-6 tables) that provide useful insights are welcome.

The JAI, which is the official publication of the Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst Association (CAIA), focuses on original applied papers in the areas of alternative investments, risk management, and asset allocation. Each quarter the JAI is read by more than 10,000 members of CAIA, which consists of institutional asset allocators, fund managers, and fund service providers.
