Credit Pulse: market update – 16 October 2020

Listen to the latest Credit Pulse

In this instalment of Credit Pulse we focus on the high-yield credit environment and how we integrate ESG throughout this asset class. Specifically, we discuss:

  • How markets are under-pricing private company credit risk
  • The record lows in recovery values of defaults seen in this cycle
  • Recent ESG trends, specifically looking at Brazilian paper company Suzano’s long 10-year sustainability-linked bond
  • The collaboration with our in-house stewardship services, EOS, and how we have driven change while engaging with companies such as Petrobras, Cemex, Banorte and BHP
