The Evolving World of ESG within Fixed Income

The rotation towards ESG was the big story of 2020, and very much within equities. Now demand for ESG debt is rising and the availability of efficient passive ESG fixed income solutions presents significant investment opportunities. On 25 May as part of a series of virtual briefings on ESG, Amundi partnered with Bloomberg in a panel discussion, “The Evolving World of ESG within Fixed Income”.

  

   

Matthieu Guignard, Global Head of Product Development and Capital Markets, Amundi ETF, Indexing & Smart Beta joins panellists from GAM Investments and University College Dublin to explore:

  • Why fixed income investing has been slower than equities in adopting ESG
  • The structure and market development for fixed income products
  • The impact of the changing regulatory environment on ESG investing
