OUR TEAM

At AlphaFixe, the integration of ESG factors into the investment process is carried out in-house by our dedicated responsible investment team composed of three full-time employees. They specialize in the analysis and integration of ESG factors into the investment process. They have in-depth knowledge and expertise on a wide range of issues, from environmental and social issues to corporate governance and the integration of sustainable development practices within a company.

The responsible investment team is located on the trading desk and is an integral part of the investment team. Credit specialists also participate in the creation of the various tools for integrating ESG factors into the investment process, enabling us to adapt our approach to the reality of the fixed-income market. For example, we have adapted our ESG analysis criteria to take into account of financial governance, which differs between a shareholder and a lender.
