Market & Macro

The literature on ESG has largely focused on the impact of ESG exposure on returns, and little has been done to directly assess the impact on risk. If we consider risk as any form of uncertainty, and further recognize that ESG by its very nature is influenced by corporate activities that impact stakeholders, then it stands to reason that there is a direct link between the management of the dimensions of E, S, and G, and the range of potential impacts on stakeholders.

We create sustainability scores for the companies we are evaluating and use those scores to complement our other Quality metrics, which in many (but not all) cases are gleaned from financial data. We believe that select ESG characteristics can be considered a proxy for long-term forward planning.

Investors who seek screened portfolios often express a desire for screening in a specific area — for example, seeking to screen tobacco from a portfolio. There are several ways in which a company can be considered to be involved in a particular product or service.

A wide range of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data vendors are now providing physical climate risk data in addition to traditional carbon data. Physical climate risk data is powerful forward-looking data that measures physical risk, which broadly encompasses the quantification of a company or country’s exposure to natural catastrophes that could be reliably tied to climate change and a warming environment.

Looking to 2023, we expect market uncertainty and volatility to persist for some time, leading to a bumpy journey ahead with a wide range of possible outcomes. We anticipate more clarity will be achieved in 2023 as we see rates peak in much of the developed world, but what follows is anything but clear. Many risks to a sustained recovery remain. We expect 2023 to be a time of “Navigating a Bumpy Landing.”

After two weeks of negotiations, the United Nation’s 27th Conference of the Parties (COP27) in Egypt concluded with a greater focus on how to suppress climate change rather than the headline commitments which have been much of what occurred at previous meetings. COP27 was the establishment of a loss and damage fund to compensate developing nations most impacted by the effects of climate change.

Real-world decarbonization is the reduction of emissions in the real-world economy. In the investment context, this refers to underlying equity and debt issuers (such as portfolio companies and sovereigns) improving their carbon profile. Broadly, the frameworks are aimed at decreasing carbon exposure in portfolios by prioritizing emissions reductions in the real-world economy. Investors may influence issuers through various channels.

While top-performing active core fixed income managers have received accolades for decades, the difficulty in selecting a top-performing manager across market cycles, and pairing this manager with other active options, has proven difficult for plan sponsors, manager selectors, and professional asset allocators alike. We believe that pairing a high conviction active core manager with an indexed approach satisfies allocators’ goals of diversification, income, and capital preservation most effectively across full market cycles from both performance and portfolio construction perspectives.

As the 26th UN Climate Change conference (COP26) concluded in Glasgow, it was clear that this ambitious conference had produced developments that will impact the financial services industry. A new standards body was established, which will help achieve a longdesired global ESG reporting standard. The global community will be watching closely to see if COP27 can help drive implementation and action from countries committed to the Paris Agreement and to targets set at COP26.

Inflation, rate rises, war, and crises of various stripes; a lot has changed in the world and the markets over the last year. Our latest research finds that while investors are indeed adapting their portfolios to the backdrop of inflation and rate hikes in the short term, there are deeper trends shaping the future state of fixed income portfolios. The opportunities are there.

EU Paris-Aligned and Climate Transition Benchmarks incorporate specific objectives aimed at the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the transition to a lower-carbon economy.

High yield markets took a significant turn during June and consequently spreads, sentiment and distress levels deteriorated quickly. The Fed’s outsized 75bp hike and a surprise contraction in consumer spending in recent weeks drove concerns for retailers specifically. Investor flows have also been negative.

However, on the balance of risks, a significant spread cushion has now been built-in making new allocations to high yield quite attractive.

In the world of investment management, the active versus indexing debate is a longstanding one. The discussion has evolved over time, and one of the most enduring questions we field is whether active management or indexing makes more sense for certain fixed income sectors, and for the asset class as a whole.

The arrival of electronic trading systems has transformed fixed income markets over the past few decades. The intersection of technology and data in fixed income trading will change how investment managers uncover value in fixed income and construct portfolios. The implications for investors promise to be very meaningful. Improving efficiency in fixed income markets will increasingly erode the alpha opportunity, which will unleash opportunities for indexing and systematic investing.

We have set targets for our in-scope assets, using the IIGCC Paris Aligned Investment Initiative’s Net Zero Investment Framework as our base starting point. Given our business model, our aggregate portfolio broadly reflects the market, and our perspective is that of a universal owner of assets. This means that real-economy carbon emissions reductions, across all sectors and all regions, are critical for our ability to meet our Net Zero goals by 2050. Our strategy for increasing the proportion of assets to be managed in line with net zero is tailored to the key levers we have to further the transition to a low- carbon economy. We have already begun our journey.

Over the last ten years, the emerging market debt (EMD) market has grown significantly. It now accounts for over 25% of the global bond market and trading liquidity has improved considerably.* We think this makes it too big for global bond investors to ignore. In the current low yield environment, EMD provides an attractive yield pick-up relative to investment grade bonds, while its lower correlation and higher growth factor exposure compared to global aggregate bonds offers diversification benefits.

Clients

Investment Beliefs

Elke klant is uniek. Het creëren van succesvolle beleggingsresultaten begint met het begrijpen van de langetermijndoelstellingen en –verplichtingen van de klant. Bij het maken van investeringen houden wij dan ook rekening met het feit dat markten niet altijd efficiënt zijn.

Met onze aanpak richten we ons op activaspreiding om zo langetermijnresultaten en een brede toegang tot de markt te bereiken. Bij het bouwen van efficiënte portfolio’s ligt de focus op een combinatie van de onderliggende risico’s, niet op de labels van de activaklassen. Onze vaardigheid als beheerder helpt daarbij.

Daarnaast zijn wij ervan overtuigd dat beleggingen met een focus op duurzaamheid op lange termijn meer toegevoegde waarde bieden voor onze klanten. Daarom streven we ernaar innovatief te blijven op het gebied van ESG-integratie.

Market View

We zijn voorzichtig optimistisch voor 2022. De markten worden verder op de proef gesteld door de Covid-19 pandemie, maar er is spaargeld om groei te ondersteunen, niettegenstaande de onzekerheid over inflatie en het monetaire beleid. Terwijl we hopen uit de humanitaire en economische crisis te klimmen, komen andere, dringende zaken terug op de voorgrond: de zoektocht naar rendement in een lage-rente omgeving, en de klimaatcrisis – allesbepalend de komende jaren.

Values and Objectives

Verantwoord beleggen om er met z’n allen economisch en sociaal op vooruit te gaan. Dat is onze opdracht. En dat maken we waar door constant te vernieuwen. 

We maken tijd voor onze klanten en zitten graag met hen aan tafel voor een goed gesprek. Zo komen we tot oprecht wederzijds begrip en kunnen problemen opgelost worden. Daarbij laten we ons vooral inspireren door onze schaalgrootte, middelen en jarenlange ervaring.

Daarnaast zijn we al meer dan 30 jaar leider op het gebied van ESG-beleggingen. State Street Global Advisors adviseert en begeleidt haar klanten ten aanzien van het opstellen van een ESG-beleggingsstrategie en implementeert deze in de portefeuille of benchmark. De voorbije jaren hebben we een aantal nieuwe ESG-fondsoplossingen geïntroduceerd: twee fiscaal transparante fondsen tegen een groene benchmark en drie regionale klimaatfondsen. Ook onze bestaande fondsen blijven we verder vergroenen. Daarnaast anticiperen we op de trends die we zien en verwachten op de markt, zowel op het gebied van wet- en regelgeving als op onderwerpen als klimaat, SDG’s en impact investing.
