Process

The Climate Fixed Income strategy combines our top-down view on rates and/or credit markets, to determine overall risk positioning, with bottom-up fundamental research to identify the best investment opportunities consistent with a Paris-aligned framework. 

Climate change considerations are fully integrated in the investment process across multiple components, including climate specific exclusions of fossil fuel, bottom-up issuer analysis and portfolio construction. Furthermore, we will continue to engage with investee companies to drive emission reductions in the real economy and create real-world impact. We ask companies to implement a strong climate governance framework, to take action to reduce carbon emissions, and to improve their reporting related to climate change.
