Welcome to this our second annual environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment report, detailing our performance over 2017. As you will see from the contents, we continue to make progress in embedding ESG thinking into our investment practices.
As market and client dynamics shift, BlueBay as an organisation, strives to ensure that we remain at the forefront of investor needs in fixed income. ESG is emerging as an increasingly important investment consideration for many investors globally across all asset classes including fixed income.
An ESG investment survey conducted by our parent company, the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Global Asset Management, during 2017 highlighted that over two-thirds of participants use ESG principles as part of their investment practices and decision making. Our culture and approach means that we have the skills and expertise to analyse and understand ESG considerations in the investment process. We hope you enjoy reading about our efforts and look forward to engaging with you as we continue our journey.
