The Investment Case for EM Sustainable Blended Debt

  • Emerging markets and Frontier countries generally belongs to the low or middle-income parts of the World when measured on GDP per capita.
  • The emerging debt asset class is growing, yet it still only counts for approximately 20% of the world’s total GDP thus far below levels found in the developed markets. At the same time, roughly 70% or more of the World’s populations live in the 80 most common emerging market countries, so the long-term opportunities for investors are vast and well founded.
  • Emerging countries typically have growing populations and lower capital bases compared to high income countries therefore they tend to grow structurally higher causing their income to converge towards that of more developed countries. 
  • When we consider sustainability in the context of this less developed part of the World, and especially with respect to sovereign debt, it is important to accept this fact and consider a broad set of indicators to understand the level of environmental (E), social (S) and governance (G) performance and its development.  We must consider how to set the boundaries within the investment universe by analyzing good ESG performers from poor ESG performers.
  • The UN 2030 Development Goals focus on the inequality in resources, income and institutional strengths that prevents emerging countries from obtaining a sustainable future. Sydinvest actively use targeted data on the countries SDG performance to understand the ESG risks that influence each state’s willingness and capability to honor its debt obligations towards its creditors. We bring the SDGs directly into the investment process.
  • The Sydinvest EM Sustainable Blended Debt Fund is an example of such a strategy.

The ESG+ Strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals Index

  • The fund invest in a blended portfolio of hard and local currency sovereign bonds issued from emerging market and frontier countries. The objective is to provide investors with excess returns to the unrestricted benchmark through active portfolio management.
  • The fund invests with an active ESG approach that offers most extensive sovereign sustainability analysis developed by Sydbank. It includes more ESG data and tougher criteria compared to a traditional risk-based ESG analysis.
  • The ESG+ approach includes the global SDG Index that tracks countries implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, it explicitly excludes countries subject to weapons sanctions and it excludes quasi-sovereign companies involved in fossil fuels business areas. Finally, it aims to include green sovereign bonds where such opportunities emerge.
  • The fund invests with an active conviction to select countries with good ESG and investment value as well as long-term upside potential.
  • Countries and their state-owned companies must live up to the ESG criteria set out by the portfolio team. If not, they will be excluded and instead the team will invest into alternative high conviction allocations that offers better value and equal risk. Hence, the strategy does not aim to replicate the benchmark and will accept short-term performance deviations because of that.
  • The Sydinvest EM Sustainable Blended Debt Fund offers investors a unique opportunity to invest with a normative and impact orientated view in emerging market bonds. To invest in emerging countries where the future path of investment value as well as fundamental human values are expected to thrive.
