Sustainability: the bond that endures Tools and insights for ESG investing in fixed income

Sustainable investing is going mainstream.

Evidence is building that a focus on sustainability-related factors — ranging from carbon efficiency to quality of governance — can help investors build more resilient portfolios. Many are starting to assess their exposure to climate and other sustainability-related risks — and regulators around the world are adding to this push. The risks can have a material impact on corporate performance, and may even give rise to financial instability as climate change affects banks and insurers, the International Monetary Fund argues in its most recent Global Financial Stability Report. The equity market has largely written the history of sustainable investing — and played a starring role in it.

We show how innovations such as ESG bond indexes have created building blocks that investors can now use to create sustainable multi-asset portfolios.
