Rong Ren our Fixed Income Portfolio Manager addresses the questions that are on many investor’s minds such as whether companies can be ESG focused and profitable at the same time, as well as the breadth of ESG focused opportunities within Asian fixed income.
The strategy seeks to achieve sustainable returns over the medium term by investing primarily in bonds issued by Asian issuers that are aligned to Eastspring’s internal Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) principles. ESG screening is applied on the Fund’s investible universe to exclude issuers, which are in violation of our ESG principles.
Proprietary ESG assessment and monitoring is conducted on each issuer as part of the investment team’s bottom-up credit analysis process, providing the investment team with in-depth understanding of the ESG profile of each issuer and integrating the information in portfolio construction.
With Asia’s unique mix of strong economic growth and policy support, find out why we think Asia offers the opportunity for ESG outperformance as rapid wealth accumulation and rising ESG investing opportunities intersect.
