Socially-Responsible Fixed Income Investing

June 08, 2018 | Ben Mohr, CFA, Director of Fixed Income

Socially-responsible investing (SRI) is one of the fastest-developing segments of investing and we see a ballooning trend of true action taken by investors. Specifically for fixed income, socially-responsible investing is growing and a great deal is evolving in the recent landscape, particularly in terms of philosophical changes as well as the development of new products where “the rubber meets the road.”

This white paper explores trends in socially-responsible fixed income investing and assesses the challenges.

Finally, we evaluate methods to invest in fixed income for the responsibly-minded investor.
