You are in Direct - Fixed Income » ESG incorporation in actively managed fixed income » (A) Implementation: Screening
We apply screens based on our IMAs with our clients. We also use ESG ratings from specialist ESG research providers to evaluate issuers. We supplement this with internal research.
Our internal research adds colour to our understanding of the ESG process of the company. Companies with impressive ESG processes usually stand out and may be given a higher weight in our portfolio. ESG ratings are generally used to make sure the company is doing a reasonable job.
We use third-party data to check if an issuer has a low ESG score
We have been trying to arrange more meetings with management to better understand individual companies’ ESG practices and not just relying on our database. We will build this up more over time.
