Spotlight on ESG: A Changing Climate in Fixed Income - June 2023
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has emerged as one of the fastest growing disciplines within our industry, and as stakeholders increasingly prioritise the performance of corporates on ESG metrics, it has become crucial for companies to keep pace with the evolving landscape of ESG reporting.
This has presented additional challenges since a divergence in reporting standards and data disclosures has appeared not only across asset classes, but within individual sectors. In addition, whilst reporting on key ESG metrics is essential, it represents just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to best reporting practices and the significance of engagement remains a vital factor.
Portfolio Manager Johnathan Owen hosted a ‘Unmasking best reporting & engagement practices’ webinar, which explored how the ESG landscape has changed within Fixed Income.
The update was followed by a Q&A session.
