Fixed income - Corporate (financial)

Our integrated ESG process is in place for all fixed income assets managed internally.

We focus on transparency of envrionmental and social reporting and CO2 footprint. Also in 2019 we emphasized these areas as part of our wider ESG reporting initiative. It included wide engagement with issuers and a dialogue to enhance transparency long term.

We also engage regularly, when needed on bond holders structuring cases.

Our process in fixed income follows the same principles we have in all our mutual fund ESG work.

Regular ESG reports regarding eQ fixed income funds are available on eQ's web page.
