James Cameron, the vice chairman of London-based climate change investment specialists and advisers Climate Change Capital (CCC) will address FEAL executive members at the annual forum this month in Melbourne.

Cameron is responsible for strategic and sector development and is an expert in developing market based responses to climate change. His visit is sponsored by IXIS Asset Management in Australia and Karyn West, IXIS managing director, said his keynote speech should generate debate among Australia’s superannuation fund executives. “We are seeing a rapidly growing level of interest from our institutional investors in socially responsible products and the impact these may have on investment outcomes,” West said. Before joining CCC, Cameron was counsel to Baker & McKenzie and was the founder of its climate change practice. “James is a specialist in commercial opportunities created by low-carbon economies, which is gaining increasing importance in the debate on climate change and global warming,” West said.
