Environmental, Social and Governance

(ESG) Investment Risk Management


Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Investment Risk Management relates to how BlueBay incorporates ESG factors into its investment processes.

New: BlueBay ESG Investment - Annual Report 2016

Read BlueBay’s first annual Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investment risk report by clicking here.

Investment analysis of non-financial factors – commonly referred to as ESG factors – encompasses those aspects of an issuer’s operations that influence its ability to meet its financial obligations.

These ESG-related risks (and opportunities) will vary by country, industry and by characteristics specific to an issuer, such as size and geographical footprint. However examples of each type of ESG risk could include the following:

Environmental Icon

Environmental: climate change potentially raises the risk of natural commodities like oil & gas, or coal being ‘stranded’ due to regulation which prevents them from being developed

Social Icon

Social: unethical and unsafe supply chain practice can pose a potential security of supply risk for retailers and manufacturers if a supplier's facilities are shut down or impacted by accidents

Governance Icon

Governance: lack of appropriate board oversight and decision-making structures can undermine investor confidence in management
