The impact of ESG on investing in corporate bonds

July 2018

Fidelity International investigates the relationship between ESG scores and characteristics of corporate bonds issuers.

Highlights

  • After a brief overview of the rationale for ESG investing, we examine the main investment implications in fixed income, focusing on corporate bond issuers, and investigate the impact of ESG factors on fixed income portfolios.

  • The paper then aims to establish empirically whether ESG characteristics can be considered an additional, independent risk factor with respect to traditional fixed income factors.

  • Our findings show that integrating ESG characteristics beyond pure financial data in a corporate bond portfolio can add value by both improving performance and reducing returns volatility.
