Hedge funds increasingly incorporating ESG metrics

Related Topics

The incorporation of environmental and social metrics into investment strategies is becoming increasingly common among hedge fund managers, according to a report by Bloomberg citing research by analysts at UBS Group.

The report cites a note published by the company’s Global Wealth Management business on Wednesday as saying that:
“Hedge funds have continued to step up sustainability integration into investment strategies,” and that there is also “a subset pursuing dedicated sustainable investment deployment via equity long/short and credit strategies, mostly within thematic equities and green, social and sustainable bonds.”

And with the prospect of lower interest rates in 2024, a recovery in green assets is expected to follow which, according to UBS, should in turn “increase confidence for business investment in areas tied to sustainability”.
