Special: ESG in Alternative Investments

- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – With this Special Report, we are pleased to have been able to span a wide range in the maturity in managers’ efforts, from early adapters active in the field for years or decades to those taking their first steps. Alternative investments include a good breadth and depth of strategies with their unique challenges and opportunities to improve their ESG-ability. At times in small steps, as not all strategies are born equal to overcome their challenges and hurdles to a more sustainable investment process. More recent innovations such as ESG-futures contracts are certainly supporting efforts even among strategies where a sustainable approach seemed more challenging, such as the Managed Futures space, for example.

And indeed, the first contribution in this special report is by Dutch CTA pioneer Harold de Boer, where he is “Embracing Diversity of Opinions and Variety of Approaches Regarding Responsible Investing.” Emerging markets, too, for some time, seemed a more challenging arena for sustainable investors. PineBridge’s John Bates looks into “How ESG Can Enhance Outcomes in Emerging Markets Fixed Income.” Staying on subject, Jens Nystedt and Oliver Faltin-Trager at Emso Asset Management claim “EM ESG Fixed Income Strategies Pass Their First Stress Test,” while Declan O’Brien of UBS Asset Management shows how “ESG and Infrastructure – Moving Towards a Better Future.” Man Group’s Robert Furdak tells the “Short, But Sweet” story on Returns from Irresponsible Companies. CARN Capital’s Melanie Brooks Cautions to “Mind the Gap from Exclusion to ESG to Sustainability.”

Jack Inglis’ contribution takes us back to the roots as he reminds us of “The Goal of Sustainable Finance,” while CME Group describes the “Remarkable Progress, Evolving Indices and Futures Growth” and finally, we look into the before-mentioned study on “Hedge Fund Investors Driving ESG Uptake.”
