It’s getting hard to avoid noticing the impact of climate change, but mankind (true to form) is trying its best to do so.

The threat, which mainly results through emissions of carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels, is absent from the US presidential debate. Republicans call it a hoax. The Democrats have other priorities.

The UK coalition government is close to reversing a pledge to oppose a third runway at Heathrow Airport, once a plank for its green credentials.

Why the lack of interest?

I recently had lunch with a man who said the rich are getting too much stick. This concerned him. The problem, as he saw it, was that all wealthy people are being lumped together with bankers.

The BRIC countries might be continuing to post strong GDP growth, but frontier markets, such as Vietnam and Cambodia, are the ones increasingly attracting investor attention. Dragon Capital reckons sustainable practices in these economies present some exceptional investment opportunities.

Since the 1970s, when emerging markets were first identified as potentially lucrative investment opportunities, investors have become increasingly confident about investing in these markets. Nowhere more so is this the case than in Asia.

Vietnam Enterprise Investments Limited is Dragon Capital’s largest fund and is widely recognised as the oldest listed Vietnam-focused fund. Many of the original group from its 1996 launch remain invested today and have been reaping the benefits over the life of the fund.

Imagine starting a financial institution six years before any kind of stock or capital markets existed. Imagine considering starting that company in a country where the GDP per capita was $227 (€173) and there was no infrastructure for foreign investment, no democratic elections and no banking system, let alone corporate governance or international accounting standards. Imagine then, having the foresight to view this daunting task as a rare opportunity in an Asian frontier market in 1994.

Again and again, the financial community makes no distinction between the do-it-yourself investor and those who would prefer to use an adviser. The truth is, most investors (two-thirds, according to many studies) yearn for a trusted adviser. Their quest, however, is often frustrated by a number of obstacles.

The failure of Europe’s politicians and central bankers to debate the eurozone plan properly is one of the notorious examples of “groupthink” of recent times.

One of the odd things about the years leading up to the creation of the euro in 1999 was the fact that, outside the UK and Scandinavia, so few Europeans in a position of authority found fault with the thing.

Antonio Fazio of Banca d’Italia was an exception to the rule – the only central bank governor in Europe to go public with his objections – according to David Marsh, author of The Euro, a history of the single currency.

“It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights…". You don’t need to be a Goldman Sachs client to become a muppet, although it helps. 

“It’s time to play the music,
It’s time to light the lights…”
