Integrating Climate Risks into Sovereign Bond Investments

- Oct 29 2019

The global sovereign debt market is one of the largest asset classess in the world, yet fixed income markets have typically lagged other asset classes in relation to ESG integration. Furthermore, sovereign debt investors are exposed to a range of climate change risks that are typically not well understood or incorporated in the investment process.

The FTSE Climate Risk-Adjusted World Government Bond Index responds to these challenges by allowing sovereign debt investors to incorporate climate risk considerations into their portfolios. This index uses climate risk modelling that was developed by Beyond Ratings. Learn more about the Climate WGBI in the video on FTSE Russell's website.
