SDG Credits

SDG Credits

Pioneering SDG framework for credit portfolios

Key points:

  • Positive contribution to Sustainable Development Goals
  • High-quality fundamental credit research to manage risk and identify opportunities
  • Credit team of more than 30 credit specialists with deep industry and company knowledge
  • SDG scores validated by RobecoSAM Sustainability Investing Research team

Philosophy

Credit markets often show signs of dislocation, and typical benchmark thinking and institutional biases mean some investment opportunities are overlooked. We believe that we can discover and capture market inefficiencies in valuation, risk and reward by combining in-depth fundamental and ESG research with contrarian portfolio construction and strict risk control.

Process

The strategy applies the RobecoSAM screening framework to define an SDG investable universe composed of issuers that make a positive contribution to the SDGs. 

The research process combines a top-down market view to assess credit attractiveness and factors that drive credit market returns in the short term with skillful issuer selection to create a broadly diversified portfolio. In this respect, avoiding losers is more important than always picking winners.
