Survey finds private equity investors looking to boost renewable holdings, cut oil and gas ties FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):Roughly 40% of private equity investors say they will be reducing investments in the oil and gas sector in the next five years because of climate change concerns, according to a winter outlook survey conducted by secondary market investment firm Coller Capital Ltd.“Limited partners who do expect change to their investment strategies are broadly planning to replace oil and gas exposure with investment in renewable energy and climate-friendly products and services,” Coller said in the survey’s Nov. 28 release.While 57% of the 113 limited partner investors surveyed in Europe and Asia said they were changing energy strategies in reaction to climate change, only 30% of North American limited partners said the same, according to the survey. Just 16% of those in North America expect to need to make these modifications within the next five years, the survey found. More than one-third of those surveyed said they would be reducing investment in oil and gas, 42% said they would put more money behind climate-friendly goods and services, and 40% said more investment cash would go to renewable energy, according to the survey.

New Delhi: Serena Williams heads into this year’s French Open as an outsider for a Grand Slam title for possibly the first time in 20 years, with questions surrounding her fitness after a poor start to the season, while Naomi Osaka needs to rediscover her best form to solidify her position at the top of the women’s game with a third straight major crown.The 37-year-old Williams is still waiting for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam triumph, with her last victory coming at the 2017 Australian Open shortly before taking a break from the sport due to pregnancy.She impressed initially after returning, but last year twice fell just short of drawing level with Margaret Court’s mark, losing in the Wimbledon final to Angelique Kerber before her infamous meltdown en route to another final defeat by Osaka at Flushing Meadows. Williams’ 2019 campaign has not gone to plan so far, with a series of injuries seeing her manage just four matches since her Australian Open quarter-final exit to Karolina Pliskova. But she is confident her work off the court can help her find her best game in the biggest tournaments.”I actually haven’t been able to train or practice a lot.I was out much longer than I expected,” admitted the three-time French Open champion last week in Rome, before pulling out of the tournament ahead of a second-round tie with sister Venus.”But I did everything I could to stay fit. I knew that I love the clay season and I wanted to be a part of it.”It’s not about today or tomorrow. For me obviously it’s about playing well at all the big moments… Obviously the Slams, etc, just getting ready for those events.” For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
