The fifth episode of ‘Are we there yet?’ explains why ESG is more than just an equity play

In this episode of ‘Are we there yet?’, Charles de Quinsonas and host Ana Cuddeford discuss the sustainability movement in emerging economies, opportunities for ESG bondholders and the outlook for the sustainable fixed income market.
