Shell corporate report

Shell corporate report

Report summary

Shell is at the early stages of a generational shift in strategy: transitioning from a company that had for too long - by its own admission - emphasised volume growth above all else, to one which is unequivocally driven by shareholder returns. We think this is absolutely the right thing for Shell to be doing: this is what Supermajor strategy should look like.

We also think Shell has the portfolio to deliver. Strengthened by the acquisition of BG - an outstanding strategic deal in our eyes - the company is optimally placed to navigate an increasingly uncertain and complex energy space, in which the threat of peak oil demand looms large: development options at the low end of the cost curve; well balanced across resource themes and segments; a foothold in renewables.
