In this report, we examine how institutional investors view investment grade fixed income and ESG in the context of investment portfolios, which in recent months have endured the market volatility and disruptions caused by the COVID-19 crisis, as well as widespread social and political unrest.
New research conducted with Greenwich Associates illustrates that institutions are using ESG in investment grade fixed income more than any other asset class.
Data from our study with Greenwich Associates suggests that investment grade fixed income is an ideal place for institutional investors to begin integrating ESG into their investment portfolios. In fact, high grade bonds and environmental, social and governance (ESG) are such a good match that investors should consider investment grade fixed income as a foundational asset class for the broader integration of ESG into their organizations and investment processes.
We hosted a webinar with Greenwich Associates on Tuesday March 23, 2021 at 2pm EST. Peter Coffin, Jeff Glenn, Andrew McCollum and Moderator Dominica Ribeiro reviewed the key conclusions drawn from the results of our study of 80 midsize institutional investors.
