Nature is Capital
Climate Asset Management is a dedicated natural capital investment manager - a joint venture1 between HSBC Asset Management and Pollination - a specialist climate change advisory and investment firm. They see nature as the most fundamental form of capital.
Natural capital is the critical infrastructure of the world's natural assets that protects and supports life on earth. It includes land, soil, oceans, air, trees, plants, animals and the processes that ensure their health, protection and restoration. In other words, natural capital makes all life on earth possible.
Climate Asset Management acknowledges that nature is priceless – in mainstreaming natural capital in existing asset classes, they seek explicitly to value nature in economic terms.
Natural capital represents an opportunity for investors not only to generate long-term value from the finite and essential resources that support life on our planet, but also to manage them in a way that enhances those assets for future generations.
Climate Asset Management’s mission is to develop and deliver investment solutions that accelerate the transition to a net zero, nature and climate resilient future.

Alternative investments may not be suitable for all clients. As with any investment, the value and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested. However, these products can be highly speculative; more volatile; less liquid and are generally intended for experienced and financially sophisticated investors who are willing to bear the risks associated with such investments.
