Foundations of ESG Investing in Corporate Bonds
A growing number of institutional investors are looking to incorporate ESG factors into the fixed-income investment process, alongside traditional financial factors. The latest study in the Foundations of ESG Investing series, Foundations of ESG Investing in Corporate Bonds, builds on the existing ESG literature on equities and extends our research to corporate bonds.
Starting with a universe based on the MSCI Investment Grade (IG) and High Yield (HY) Corporate Bond Indexes for USD and EUR, we explored the impact of incorporating environmental, social and governance-related (ESG) factors on the risk and performance of corporate-bond portfolios.
Please join us for this regional event series where our research experts will share key findings from the study and provide an overview of the MSCI Fixed Income Indexes.
- What impact did ESG have on risk and performance? What is the economic and empirical basis?
- What is the added value of the MSCI ESG rating compared to existing credit ratings?
