We surveyed 146 of our wealth clients to examine their plans for adapting their portfolios ready for the sustainable transition.


We also asked how geopolitical uncertainty and market volatility have affected their allocations to sustainable investments.

Position your portfolio for the net zero transition

The transition towards a decarbonized economy is underway and will entail massive reallocation of resources. Economies will be reshaped as carbon emissions are cut.

Whilst the exact path of the transition from here is uncertain, this research aims to address some of the considerations to help clients navigate this transformation.

Our strategic views

As a long period of steady growth and low inflation comes to an end, we’re facing a new regime of heightened volatility. This means investors’ strategic views and asset allocations will need much more frequent adjustments. Higher risk premia and a worsening macro backdrop may weigh on equity returns while rising rates create an unfavourable environment for developed-market bonds. The attractions of inflation-linked bonds and credit now look more compelling.

Back to a volatile future

The Great Moderation, a period of steady growth and inflation, appears to be over. Instead, we are braving a new world of heightened macro volatility – and higher risk premia for both bonds and equities. This regime has echoes of the early 1980s, so we’ve calling our Midyear Outlook Back to a volatile future.

With war raging, escalation risk tops the table

Our BlackRock Geopolitical Risk Indicator is at heightened levels, meaning that markets are focused on political risks. We see Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as Europe’s most serious security situation and humanitarian crisis since the Second World War. We expect the conflict to be prolonged as there is currently no path to a negotiated settlement and the lifting of sanctions. Meanwhile, our indicator reflects growing tensions in the Gulf as the prospects worsen for a nuclear deal with Iran.
