The Investment Podcast: What does good ESG in ABS look like?

14 min listen 15 Feb 23

The evolution and implementation of ESG across asset classes has not been homogenous, and it resonates more so with corporate debt and equities when compared with specialised asset classes, such as ABS. What has been observed in the marketplace is a development of good outputs for corporates and equities, but with less of a focus on ABS, investors have been left to devise their own strategies. This instalment considers how ESG in ABS differs to other asset classes and asks: What does good look like?

Speakers: Anuj Babber, Head of Structured and Private Asset Research and Cristina de Guzmán Esteban, ABS Credit Analyst. 
Host: Romil Patel, Senior Editorial Manager.
