Hermes discusses link between ESG factors and credit spreads (Investment Europe)

Hermes Investment Management says recent research has identified a clear link between companies with better ESG scores and their ability to benefit from narrower spreads on credit default swaps.

The data comes from the Credit and Responsibility teams at Hermes, which has pursued further research following a study published in 2017, which looked to develop a pricing model to capture the influence of ESG factors on credit spreads. The latest research has included an additional 500 data points, Hermes said.
