Translating Climate Science into Investment Analysis


AB and The Columbia Climate School, home of the world-renowned Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, started our collaboration in September 2019 to create a ‘first-of-its-kind’ climate change and impact investment curriculum, “Climate Science and Portfolio Risk.”

Designed by AB investment professionals and top Lamont-Doherty research professors, it fills a major industry need for asset managers to dig deeper into the complex issues around climate change and its impact on economic and financial outcomes.

The program addresses the risks of global climate change, including rising sea levels, and predictive modelling for extreme weather, wildfires and other threats from a warming planet. The goal is to increase the understanding—both within and outside the asset-management industry—of the impacts of climate change. With an improved understanding of the science behind climate change, we believe we’ll be better able to translate its broad impacts into inputs and tools to sharpen our investment analysis.


Climate Change and Investment Training

AB developed a service to enable investment professionals to access the same series of educational training programs that our analysts and fund managers have benefitted from through our collaboration with the Climate School at Columbia University.
