Posted on March 18, 2021

Have you considered steering your capital toward companies that are more in line with your environmental, social and governance values?

Opal-Group-200x200-2During the Opal Group’s recent 2021 Public Funds Summit, DDJ Portfolio Manager and Director of Research Roman Rjanikov held a discussion with Erika Kennedy, Director, Business Development, about ESG and High Yield and how investors can have the best of both worlds.

During the discussion with Ms. Kennedy, Mr. Rjanikov elaborates on:

  • The potentially huge impact that investors can make via their capital allocation decisions (e.g., by rewarding specific sectors such as sustainable energy);
  • Balancing the possibility of attractive returns with ESG responsibilities and goals; and
  • Avoiding pitfalls associated with broad ESG mandates and third-party ESG ratings.
