Investment Implications of the Inflation Reduction Act on Climate Sustainability
The recently passed Inflation Reduction Act (“IRA”), with more than $350 billion in climate-related investments, is the largest investment the US has ever made to fight climate change. In both public and private markets, Tiedemann has been investing for several years in the types of decarbonization technology that feature heavily in the IRA. The IRA also provides funding that aligns with our growing investment focus on nature-based solutions and environmental justice. We believe the IRA is a major step forward in the fight against climate change.
The Energy Transition
The energy transition is underway, and it represents a monumental shift in the trajectory of one of the most important business lines in our global society. It also represents a multi-decade opportunity to invest in the businesses which will create the physical infrastructure of the future. We believe a robust framework and capable partners are needed to navigate this transition within both public and private markets and our ESG & Business Quality framework will continue to help us navigate threats and opportunities.

What Happens to the Dollar If the Chinese Digital Yuan Goes Global?
The convergence of a shifting international power balance and the digitization of the world economy will have tremendous implications for two of the world’s great powers – China and the United States – as they grapple with evolving, modernized systems. With their “Digital Currency Electronic Payment” (DCEP) program in its early trial stages and growing presence on every continent through their Belt and Road (BRI) and Digital Silk Road Initiatives (DSR), China has showed significant interest in taking over as a world leader in the coming years. The rolling impact of new technologies that revolutionize the global economy from automated supply chains to digital currency lead us to believe that the United States has a lot of work to do to adapt to the coming tide.

At Tiedemann Advisors, we have facilitated more conversations with clients and their families who felt compelled to start—or increase—their philanthropic efforts this year compared to years prior. In particular, we saw increased interest to improve access to affordable housing across the nation as demand soared due to the pandemic. Families worked with nonprofits to both increase the supply of quality homes as well as advance racial equity and promote upward mobility in this long-segregated market. For those looking to make a positive impact, whether that’s directed at relief for those affected by Covid-19, social justice initiatives, or companies combatting climate change, here are a few considerations.
