Try refreshing your browser, or China's Climate-Focused Funds Surpass U.S. With $47 Billion in Assets China’s fund assets grew to $47 billion in 2021, a 149% increase from the previous year sparked by record inflows and outperformance by the domestic clean energy sector, according to data from research firm Morningstar Inc. In the U.S., climate funds rose to $31 billion, while Europe, by far the biggest market, almost doubled to $325 billion.
“In the West, climate protection awareness is probably a main factor driving the growth,” said Morningstar ESG analyst Boya Wang. “In China, it’s largely driven by policy. After the government officially approved carbon neutrality and net-zero targets in 2021, we saw a mushrooming of all these new climate funds.” Investors in China added $11.3 billion into climate-focused funds last year, almost double their 2020 level. They were richly rewarded. Chinese climate funds were up 15% on average in the …

Tax, Metaverse, and Sustainability in Focus at INTA Annual Meeting—Plus Speeches by ...
An understanding of tax issues is increasingly important for trademark practitioners—and a new report by the International Trademark Association (INTA) focusing on the European Union, Switzerland and the United Kingdom aims to help them achieve that.
The “Report on the Taxation of Trademarks and Complementary Rights in Europe” was unveiled at the 144th INTA Annual Meeting Live+, which was held in Washington, D.C. and online from April 30 to May 3. There were more than 6,700 registrants from 130 countries.
The Report guides readers through the key tax considerations in the trademark cycle (creation/acquisition, exploitation and transfer) and also explains key tax-related terms.
In the section on exploitation and commercialization, the Report explains three popular models—the proprietor’s own use model, the license model and the principal model—and discusses tax implications, location considerations and valuation methods.
With brands increasingly at the center of corporate value, tax regulators are paying more attention to where IP rights are located and managed, explained Jeff Marowits, president, client services at Keystone Strategy and a member of INTA’s Research Advisory Council, Global Transactions and Tax Subcommittee: “Tax regimes are seeking to assess where firms generate profits and take a share of profits in a global economy.”
At present, however, he said …
See Every Look From the Adidas x Gucci Collaboration That's Dropping June 7th | Vogue
Collaborations are often a shrewd exercise in merging brand signifiers to produce desirable hybrids that tempt consumers. But not all collabs are created equal. In some instances, such experiments have produced new specimens born out of genuine creative affinities.
This appears to be the case with Alessandro Michele’s adventures in the sometimes slippery terrain of label partnerships. Pivoting on the idea of metamorphosis pervading his entire oeuvre, he has mastered a series of spectacular crossovers (he’s reluctant to call them collaborations) with fellow creatives, like the now famous Hacking Project with Demna’s Balenciaga for fall 2021. As the Latin saying goes, repeating does good, and in his Exquisite Gucci fall 2022 fashion show Michele turned the focus on adidas, a megabrand whose imagery is rich in personal and sentimental memories not only for the designer, but also for a young (and not so young) demographic.
An avid collector of adidas Gazelle sneakers, Michele is a longtime fan of the label. Its sporty retro glamour resonates with his sentiment for the past, so the marriage between Gucci and adidas seems to be the result of a natural creative ease. Launched at his Milan show last September, the (surely conscious) coupling will touch down …

Mark Turner: A Modern Saxophone Master - JazzTimes
When you hear tenor saxophonist Mark Turner’s name in conversation, it seems to be frequently linked to the notions of mindfulness, precision, and fastidiousness. “That is a good thing … I think,” Turner says from Switzerland, in between a day’s Zoom lessons with students and a night’s gig with his ensemble.
It also makes him contemporary creative music’s sharp dressed man, buttoned up but free, with a feel for the intergalactic in his composition and the spacy (albeit with a serrated edge) in his playing. Listen to his newest ECM album, Return from the Stars: He’s creating exploratory jazz with a vision that’s both open-ended and clear-cut.
So what does Turner do that isn’t so sharp and clean?
“My social interactions,” the saxophonist says with a laugh. “I’m not too together on that, staying connected. I’m definitely the opposite of meticulous on that count. Very messy.”
Luckily, his interactions with intelligent and equally diligent fellow improvisers have remained clear since at least his time as a sideman to Leon Parker (ref: 1994’s Above & Below).
“I think attention to detail is important,” he continues. “Most of the artistic masters that I look to, in jazz and the European music continuum—even the visual art world and …

Can Elon Musk's Twitter redefine in-app advertising for brands & consumers? - Exchange4media
Ever since the announcement of Elon Musk buying Twitter for $44 billion broke out, the world has been abuzz with the plans of the world’s richest man for the social media platform. According to industry experts, the final deal is, however, going to take some more months to hammer out. While it may indeed be the internet’s ‘town square’, where news and opinions are beamed out across the world, Twitter is also a vital platform for brands and advertisers, especially those in tech, auto, industry, and policymaking among others. Experts believe that Musk’s plans to bring about dramatic changes to the site’s functioning could have seismic shifts for a plethora of businesses.
For instance, according to Musk, proposed changes to Twitter’s algorithms, including making them open-sourced and viewable by concerned parties, are being done to promote free speech and reduce content moderation.
Freya D’Souza, VP – Strategy & Analytics, at Dentsu Webchutney, says that while this in itself will not have an impact in terms of content marketing, in the short term, over an extended period brands will likely end up noticing a lot more unmoderated content on their feeds. The proposal of the ‘edit button’ also works both ways, she says …
