Impact of COVID-19: Exploring Factors and ESG Equity and Fixed Income Resilience
Defensive Factor, ESG and Climate indexes in equities and fixed income have outperformed their respective parent indexes in the recent sell-off.
The COVID-19 crisis is not a financial crisis, but could potentially impact all industries due to simultaneous supply and demand shocks, particularly those issuers that have lower credit quality, are more leveraged and have lower environmental, social and governance (ESG) characteristics.
IPE and MSCI invite you to a webinar to examine some of drivers of the outperformance, equities, fixed income and derivatives trends and what are the wider implications if the crisis persists.
