Greenflation: Should we be Worried?

The growth of environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing may have surpassed even the most bullish expectations over the past two years. But these flows, coupled with significant policy efforts to direct capital towards low emission technologies are now being singled out as key drivers of inflation, and not only in the short term: some see it as a contributing factor to longer-term structural price increases as well. In this session, Martin Grosskopf, Vice-President and Portfolio Manager at AGF Investments will discuss the cyclical and structural elements of potential “greenflation” and how this might influence investor positioning.
