To what extent are ESG factors relevant to sovereign debt investing?

By making ESG considerations central to investment decisions, is it possible to generate alpha opportunities as well as manage downside risk?

BlueBay’s CIO Mark Dowding and Senior EM Sovereign Strategist Graham Stock, along with James Lockhart Smith, Head of Financial Sector Risk at Verisk Maplecroft, participated in a webinar following the release of our joint research report, ‘The role of ESG factors in sovereign debt investing’.

The report uses a new way of measuring country environmental, social and governance factors to reveal the extent to which they genuinely matter in sovereign debt investing.

We highlight the key findings from the report and discuss how we integrate this insight into credit analysis and portfolio management.
