The S&P Global Market Intelligence 2019 ESG Survey

Credit, Risk and Portfolio Management Functions – Capturing Opportunities and Managing Challenges

At the end of 2019, we undertook a survey of 194 credit risk professionals working in financial services firms around the world to see how their portfolio management processes have been evolving to account for environmental, social, and governance factors (ESG). The results were very interesting, reflecting the incredible surge that is being reported in global sustainable investments, which reached a new peak of $30.683 trillion USD at the beginning of 2018.1

Given this trend, there is a need to better understand the steps that credit, risk, and portfolio management teams across the financial services industry are taking to account for ESG factors in their analysis.

The survey reveals that 83% say ESG factors are integral to what they do or are playing a growing role in the credit risk area. 

Of course, analytical challenges do exist when assessing the impact of ESG factors on credit risk, however, a large number of respondents are looking to tackle these issues by building up ESG competencies in their credit risk teams over the coming months.
