Process: fixed income - introduction

FOR MORE THAN A DECADE INSIGHT HAS BEEN INVESTING RESPONSIBLY ON BEHALF OF OUR CLIENTS. OUR CREDIT SELECTION PROCESS INCORPORATES AN ASSESSMENT OF ESG RISKS ALONGSIDE FINANCIAL AND OTHER INVESTMENT CONSIDERATIONS.

While this is true of all our client portfolios that hold corporate credit risk, we give it more prominence in our buy-and-maintain strategies. Within long-term strategies, concerns over bond liquidity, the need to hold bonds to maturity, and the strategic and business risks of issuers makes a responsible investment approach critical.

Access to management, confidence in standards of corporate governance, and long-term drivers of risk and return are central features of its approach. As we typically intend to hold bonds to maturity within this strategy, our decision-makers need to be confident about the long-term financial position of the companies in which we invest and have trust in their management teams.

In this section, we explain how our analysis of ESG factors plays an integral role in our approach to credit investment, issuer selection and engagement activities.
