Portfolio Specialist, PGIM Fixed Income
Presentation: What does ESG Mean for a Bond Portfolio?
Robustly analysing credit-relevant ESG factors leads to higher risk adjusted excess returns, believes according to PGIM Fixed Income. Credit spreads may have recovered from their recent wide spreads, but we believe there is room for further tightening and opportunities to generate alpha. Join Gabriel Doz, Portfolio Specialist, to discuss how the team integrates this view into their investment process and how they apply their proprietary ESG framework to bond portfolios.
