ESG Integration.

We believe that our analysis of ESG factors in tandem with traditional credit metrics mitigates downside risk and highlights potential credit issues. We implement negative screening only when directed by a client.

SRI Strategies.

We partner with third-party vendors to monitor client-directed social restrictions. We offer customized portfolios, as well as our IR+M Socially Responsible Core Bond Fund.

Positively-Tilted ESG Strategies.

Depending on our clients’ needs, we offer positively-tilted ESG strategies that can emphasize ESG leaders, minimize ESG laggards, incorporate negative screens, and reflect distinct thematic principles.
