Inflation, diversification & the green transition.

For the better part of the last decade, commodities have been ignored and villainized by much of the developed world. This has resulted in vast underinvestment in commodity infrastructure. Underinvestment in infrastructure, villainization, and demand shocks from COVID-19 have left the energy sector in a unique position.

To get a clearer picture, Badger Investment Group hosted a live panel with two of the top portfolio managers in the energy sector who answered questions around:

  • Inflation & diversification, what role does energy play in this moving forward?
  • Can energy be a way to provide excess returns that may not come from fixed income over the coming years?
  • What does the road ahead look like for energy investors in a post-COVID/post-shale world? 
  • What role does ESG play in the future of the energy sectors? How does this impact traditional (carbon) energy and what opportunities does it provide?
