ABS analysis: through the ESG lens

The drive to push environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing into the mainstream has dominated the asset-management industry in recent years.

Beyond looking at the explicit environmental elements of green ABS, there has been little emphasis on assessing the social and governance factors within securitisation.

 In this issue of Spectrum, we consider all three axes of ESG analysis in the ABS space.
