An asset class at a crossroads: reshaping credit through ESG

Our holistic approach considers ESG factors within all stages of the investment process, from initial universe screening through to stewardship and advocacy.

Financial markets have seldom been more interested in ESG, sustainability and stewardship than they are today.
While this is fundamentally a positive trend that we believe will come to define financial markets in the future, it also makes it difficult for prospects and existing clients to distinguish asset managers who integrate ESG,
sustainability and stewardship in a genuine fashion from those who consider it to be a box-ticking exercise that
makes for good marketing.

In this paper, we outline our credit team’s ESG and engagement integration philosophy, and how the team is
working to authentically integrate ESG into every step of its investment process.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.
