Climate indices: The new frontier in fixed income benchmarks

Presented by

Tom Eckett, Editor, ETF Stream

About this talk

The European Union’s benchmark regulation (EU BMR) sets out the guidelines for Climate Transition and Paris-Aligned indices to enable investors to more easily invest toward the transition to a low carbon economy. While there are numerous climate ETFs offering exposure to equities, there is still a dearth of fixed income strategies linked to the EU’s two climate benchmark standards. Investors are looking for ways to gain passive exposure to broad fixed income indices aligned with the climate goals expressed in the Paris Agreement. This webinar explored: • Why the bond market cannot be ignored in the shift to net-zero emissions • The importance of benchmarking against a carbon reduction index • The specific challenges and opportunities of fixed income indexing and how the market is set to develop over the next five years • ICE’s recently launched corporate bond climate indices Speakers: Rebecca Palmer, Director, Sustainable Finance Data, ICE Alberto Ruiz Sena, Director, Product Management, ICE Mark Geene, Senior Investment Consultant, PGGM Institutional Business – Fiduciary Advice Tom Eckett, Editor, ETF Stream
