What is the Socially Responsible Emerging Markets Bond Strategy?
PIMCO’s Socially Responsible Emerging Markets Bond Strategy combines PIMCO’s expertise in the active management of emerging markets debt with the expertise of the Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) screen provider, Storebrand. In this way the strategy aims to achieve solid financial returns while at the same time taking into account ESG (environment, social and governance) factors.
The strategy will use PIMCO’s longstanding emerging markets (EM) investment process but will not purchase securities issued by sovereigns and corporates that do not meet the SRI provider’s selection criteria.
We believe that the combination of the strengths of two industry leaders in their respective fields – PIMCO and Storebrand – provides an attractive investment proposition for clients seeking to take advantage of opportunities in the emerging markets whilst being mindful of socially responsible criteria.
