PRI Roundtable: ESG in Credit Risk and Ratings – Frankfurt
The PRI is pleased to invite you to a roundtable, ESG in Credit Risk and Ratings, in Frankfurt, hosted by Deutsche Börse.
Participants will discuss the benefits of considering environmental, social and governance factors (ESG) in credit risk analysis as well as the related challenges and barriers. Credit rating agency (CRA) representatives, including from Dagong Europe Credit Rating, Moody’s Investors Service, Rating-Agentur Expert RA, Scope Ratings AG and S&P Global Ratings, will also attend to explain and answer questions about how CRAs consider these factors when formulating credit rating opinions. The forum will be held under the Chatham House rule.
The event will focus on corporate credit risk, drawing concrete examples from the automotive sector.
The forum is part of the PRI ESG in Credit Ratings Initiative, currently supported by 129 institutional investors (with over US$23trn of assets under management) and 14 CRAs globally. The aim of the roundtable is to gather feedback from practitioners, enhance the dialogue between investors and CRAs and contribute to the next phase of this important initiative.
