- Bloomberg Barclays MSCI ESG Fixed Income Indexes
Bloomberg, a global leader in fixed income indexing, and MSCI, the world’s largest provider of ESG (environmental, social, and governance) equity indexes and research, have collaborated on the development of a family of rules-based benchmark indexes that incorporate measures of ESG risk and exposures.
We believe, and our research shows, that sound ESG practices are linked to better business results. At MSCI, we are deeply committed to being a leader in corporate responsibility and providing the global financial community with innovative products and services that power better investment decisions for a better world.
Equity factor investing was pioneered in the 1970s based on the research, data and analytics created by Barra – today part of MSCI. In recent years, MSCI has developed a broad range of indexes and analytical models that provide institutional investors with tools for evaluating factors and incorporating factor strategies into their portfolios.
The global financial crisis of 2008 fundamentally changed global markets. Its impact on investors cannot be overstated. Here we share reflections from leading MSCI researchers discussing what we learned about risk and markets and where they see the investment world heading over the next 10 years.
