The Week’s Podcasts

🎧 This Week in Impact. Host Brian Walsh takes up ImpactAlpha’s top stories with editor David Bank. Up this week: Biden’s new Chinese tariffs and how they impact global supply chains critical for the green transition; the Global Fund for Coral Reefs’ efforts to invest in the blue economy; and the value of the "invisible" work women do to build resilient economies and fight climate change.

The Week’s Deal Spotlight

Institutional investors seek bigger stakes in climate assets in private markets. The California Public Employees Retirement System, or CalPERS, will allocate more than $25 billion over six years to green assets in private markets. It’s one of the biggest chunks of institutional capital to be earmarked for private markets and signals growing investor demand for big-dollar energy transition bets outside of public markets. Private equity firms have amassed multi-billion dollar funds to capitalize on the once-in-a generation restructuring of global economies. Their fundraising has been buoyed by pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and other institutional investors with big checkbooks and long-term perspectives. CalPERS, the largest US public pension plan with $483 billion in assets, will hunt down climate mandates in private equity, real estate and infrastructure in Europe and Asia. “The opportunity set in emerging markets will be huge,” CalPERS’ Peter Cashion told the FT.
