While different from equity investors, who own a share of the entities in which they invest, fixed income investors also play an important role in promoting the responsible investment agenda. Considering ESG factors can enhance risk assessments and as lenders of capital, fixed income investors can contribute to funding more sustainable business and growth models. In analysing the most recent Canadian PRI signatory reporting data, the signatory relations team has identified fixed income as an area of opportunity for 2021. Responsible investing policies and procedures specific to fixed income are not commonplace in Canada and many other markets, though there is a clear trend towards addressing this. Join us to learn more about the great work our fixed income team has been doing, review best practices, and discuss what fixed income reporting looks like in the new reporting framework.
