This article is part of Morningstar's Guide to Alternative Investing. Here, as part of the Perspectives series, Charlie Thomas, manager of the Jupiter Ecology Fund, reveals the themes that will provide a focus for environmental investors in 2017.

What could follow 2016, a year of upheaval and one that in the main defied popular expectations? With our focus on investing in the environmental solutions space, this question has most recently been put to us along with reference to the President-elect, Donald Trump, and what his administration might mean for the momentum we have seen in areas such as tackling global climate change. 

Heading towards my fifteenth year of managing the Jupiter Ecology Fund, experience tells me not to lose sight of exactly this – momentum. As well as a year of political disruption, I will also remember 2016 as a year of a quite startling acceleration of disruption from low-carbon technologies and sustainable infrastructure.
