A pioneer of investing in green and social bonds

We are convinced of the value of debt instruments dedicated to projects with an impact, and which offer traceability, transparency and reporting on the projects financed. Our experts have supported the development of the green bond market by actively participating in the main market institutions, as well as by internally developing a stringent methodology for analysing these instruments and creating one of the first strategies dedicated to green and social bonds.

This focus on green bonds complements our ‘traditional’ bond selection, which aims to offer our investors financial performance combined with an environmental and social impact.

Positive selection guided by a long-term approach

We have built our fixed income investment process around our long-term convictions. Thus, the selection of issuers is based on financial characteristics as well as an ESG rating that analyses the contribution of the issuer or the projects financed to sustainable development issues.

This rigorous selection process, combined with our forecasts regarding the yield curve and the risk factors that can affect bond yields, allows us to generate value over the long term and contribute to a more sustainable economy.

Impact investing, thanks in particular to green and social bonds, is at the heart of Mirova's bond strategies.
