With regulations and investment policies changing, and greener investing becoming the norm, it’s no longer “why?”—but “why not?”. Still, what are the actual benefits of adding non-financial criteria to a standard bond allocation? Where do the risk/return characteristics of ESG and non-ESG indices differ? And how is ESG reshaping credit markets overall as more investors make the switch to sustainability?

Join the experts from Bloomberg and Lyxor ETF as they discuss the U.S. credit market outlook, ESG factors in corporate bonds, and where investors should focus their attention in the months ahead.

Discussion topics:
• U.S. credit market outlook
• Reducing risk responsibly: The ESG factor in corporate bonds
• Switching to ESG credit: A natural choice
