ESG embedded in our investments
Put simply, we believe that companies with strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) credentials are the ones best placed to deliver strong, risk adjusted, long-term returns for our bond investors.
Our primary goal and responsibility is to generate the best long-term returns we can for our clients, mitigate risks and unlock opportunities. Consideration of ESG factors is therefore embedded in our fixed income research process. It’s one of the key dimensions, alongside other valuation metrics, on which we assess any company in which we invest.
We actively engage with our investee companies, combining information from these meetings with insights from our investment managers, research analysts and central ESG investment team. This creates an holistic evaluation of each bond issuer and enables us to compare one with another.
