Ocean Engagement: Shifting Tides
Rising Need for Investments and Engagement in the Blue Economy

Rockefeller Asset Management has over a quarter of a century of experience in thematic investing. In recent years, we turned our focus to the ocean: the world’s largest ecosystem and seventh largest economy. We believe that the “Blue Economy” is an emerging investment opportunity due to increased regulations, changes in consumer buying preferences, and technological advancements. Through our decade-long partnership with The Ocean Foundation, we have created a framework to identify and gain relevant exposure to blue economy investment opportunities, while also seeking to catalyze positive impact through engagement. This paper dives deeper into our investment framework, the ocean investment opportunity, and our main investment themes of pollution prevention, carbon transition, and ocean conservation.
