The 26th annual UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) fell short of our expectations and left ESG-focused investors with more considerations than ever before. It also did little to add clarity to the path ahead. With COP26 behind us, this episode of All The Credit® presents an insightful discussion of the summit, how it came to be, its purpose, and its major takeaways. Our ESG specialists also provide their take on how the asset management industry and ESG-focused client expectations will evolve in response to the pervasive demand for ESG-considerations to be incorporated into investment decisions. The discussion details how climate and social governance considerations are factored into PGIM Fixed Income’s proprietary impact ratings, what we’re doing to help ESG-focused clients meet their investment goals, including in the CLO-space, and how our active investment approach helps PGIM Fixed Income maintain a competitive advantage in the ESG-space.
