The right climate for fixed income sustainability

March 18 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am UTC+0

The sovereign debt market is one of the largest asset classes in the world, yet fixed income markets have typically lagged other asset classes in relation to ESG integration. As a result, sovereign debt investors are exposed to a range of climate change risks that are typically not well understood or incorporated into the investment process. Part of the challenge has been the lack of sustainable investment products and viable climate data across a number of areas. This unique webinar will address a number of issues for investors seeking to better integrate sustainability and climate risk considerations into their fixed income strategies:

• Global emissions reduction trajectories by sector and country

• The macroeconomic implications of climate change

• How the FTSE World Government Bond Index (WGBI) is adjusted for climate risk

• Updates on performance of the WGBI and the FTSE Climate Risk-Adjusted World Government Bond Index
