UK ESG Corporate Bonds – UKCB543
UK ESG Corporate Bonds – Assisted Search UKCB543
Deadline: Monday 22nd June
A UK consultant is working in partnership with CAMRADATA in order to conduct their research into UK ESG Corporate Bond strategies and create a watch list for monitoring on an ongoing basis. All managers must have their ESG questions completed and up to date at the firm level in CAMRADATA Live; all funds being proposed must be listed in CAMRADATA Live and returns must be up to date i.e. to 31st March 2020.
Please note, the consultant is not looking for ‘standard’ funds where the only ESG element is where a firm has integrated the assessment of ESG risks into their decision-making process. Rather, they are looking for funds that have a distinct ESG bias. This might be in the form of excluding certain companies / sectors on ESG grounds, or favouring / overweighting companies / sectors that rate highly in ESG terms, or that invest in line with a clear ESG theme (e.g. Low Carbon, Environmental, Gender Equality).
