Craig Inches, Head of Rates and Cash, looks at the importance and possible ways of bringing responsible investing to liquidity and short-term fixed income management.
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors have, in recent years, become increasingly important to investors looking for consistency of returns combined with better ESG outcomes. Consideration of these non-financial factors and metrics often play a critical role in cash and short-term fixed income investing, along with liquidity, preservation of capital and providing diversification. We believe well governed companies that are both socially and environmentally responsible are better positioned to anticipate future risks and opportunities and have greater long-term potential.
