Climate-related Risk Disclosure Statement


Last update: November 2022


Subject to the Amendments to the Fund Manager Code of Conduct (FMCC) on the Management and Disclosure of Climate-related Risks in August 2021 by the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong (SFC), OPIM is required, under certain baseline requirements as set out under the FMCC, to disclose its governance, investment management and risk management framework in relation to assessing climate-related risks under its managed funds (Funds).  The purpose of this statement is to provide clients and investors under the Funds, certain information relating to OPIM’s policy in identifying, assessing, managing and monitoring relevant and material climate-related risks applicable to investments within the relevant Funds.


OPIM has not committed to achieve any goal in promoting sustainable investment on company level; however related risks and potential economic losses due to climate change, as suggested by SFC, has become a systemic financial risk that is hard to ignore.  OPIM will, in considering compliance with the fast-growing regulatory requirements concerning climate, take into account the related risks in its overall risk assessment when managing a Fund.




The board of directors of OPIM (Board) is responsible for the overall oversight of the management of OPIM including the supervision of overall strategy and management of climate-related risks in the Funds.


The Board’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to:


  •          Act as central oversight of the management of climate impact to ensure climate risk consideration is factored into the strategic planning and investment process within the management activities across the Funds;
  •          Review investment management process and risk management framework covering climate-related risks from time to time;
  •          Monitor status of the implementation of policy and the progress of managing climate-related risks, and ensure the actions and responses to climate issues are proportionate; and
  •          Determine strategies for managing environmental impact with a focus on climate, and monitor overall fund performance and risk appetite.


OPIM has established a climate risk committee (Committee), consisting of the designated portfolio manager of the Fund, Head of Risk and Head of Compliance of OPIM, focusing on climate-related responsibilities.  The Committee directly reports to the Board on an annual basis.  The Committee has the following responsibilities:


  •          Assess from time to time climate-related risks that are relevant and material to investments within the Funds; and set out plans (as proportional to the risk impact and applicable to the Fund) for incorporating climate risk consideration in the investment management and risk management processes;
  •          Relying on the designated portfolio manager of the Fund, execute plans developed by the Committee to address climate-related risks when constructing investment portfolios and controlling overall climate risk impacts; 
  •          Review regularly the effectiveness of risk management system to ensure any potential significant climate-related risks are addressed in a timely manner; and
  •          Monitor for updates to regulatory requirements related to the management of climate-related risks and ensure compliance with such updates.


Investment Management and Risk Management 

OPIM maintains an assessment framework that aims to identify relevant and material climate-related risks within the investments of the Funds. 


Where most of the Funds do not have an investment objective stated expressly to achieve green or sustainable investing, OPIM defines relevance of climate-related risks holistically considering the investment strategy, investment horizon and asset class(es) of a particular Fund. 


OPIM also considers further, if climate-related risks are relevant to the investment strategy, the materiality of the impact of the risks as to the performance of the investments within the Fund using a combination of quantitative and qualitative metrics.  Such materiality assessment aims to identify sectors and geographical regions of the Funds’ investments that are more impacted by climate factors, by drawing references to a variety of indicators such as (a) Sustainability Accounting Standard Board’s Materiality Finder, (b) global environmental-related indices based on academic research and issued by universities ranking states of sustainability across the world, (c) exposure on NACE brown sector and high climate impact sector classified based on EC No. 1893/2006, and (d) weighted average carbon intensity number generated from reported and estimated Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emission gas data by available third party service provider. 


Data or reference used for assessment in connection with a Fund highly depends on availability of data and for any quantitative data adopted (where applicable), calculation methodology of a particular service provider that is being relied upon. OPIM provides no guarantee as to the accuracy or completeness of the assessment in concluding climate-related risks impact as to a Fund and any assessment will only be performed on a best effort basis.


To the extent climate-related risks are considered relevant and material to a Fund, OPIM will incorporate climate risk considerations into the stock selection process. Depending on the strategy implemented, the Fund will consider the investee companies’ climate goals and policies and consider from an overall perspective, if there are potential future performance impact on the investee companies.  If climate-related risks are considered not relevant or not material, periodic assessment will be made to reevaluate the relevance and materiality to a Fund.


OPIM may consider deploying a portfolio action plan to mitigate climate-related threats that may impact operation and business of the investment targets in each of the Funds.  The aim is to integrate such risks to the annual strategy review and capital allocation decision.  Regular monitoring and updates on climate-related market trends and regulatory requirements will ensure sufficient incorporation of climate risk factors into the Fund’s investment decision-making processes.  For investments in sectors categorized as having high climate-related risks, such as those in carbon intensive industries, OPIM will engage with the designated portfolio manager to understand the rationale behind the investment decision and determine whether proceeding with such investment aligns with the Fund’s risk appetite.  This is followed by evaluation of relevant mitigation plans in addressing the climate-related risks in such investment.




Disclosure on Fund specific climate-related information may be provided to specific fund investors depending on data availability for reference.
