Goldman Sachs AM Delivers Global Green Bond ETF

Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) has introduced a Global Green Bond exchange-traded fund (ETF). The fund aligns with Article 9 of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation on passive green bond funds, and is part of GSAM’s global fixed income and liquidity solutions, representing more than US$822 billion in AUM. The firm recently surpassed US$10 billion in dedicated green, social and impact bonds assets under supervision, including US$5.5 billion of open-ended funds. The new fund builds on the GSAM’s active green bond offering, providing exposure to the Solactive Global Green Bond Select Index – developed in partnership with the firm’s dedicated green, social and impact bonds team. As part of the index methodology, the team applies an enhanced sustainable investment screening at both issuer and bond level. As a result, the index typically includes companies with a lower climate risk than comparable passive benchmarks. “The latest addition to our growing green bonds fund range demonstrates our continued commitment to offer investors a plethora of ways to access the green bonds markets,” said Bram Bos, Global Head of Green, Social & Impact Bonds at GSAM. “Green bonds are an important source of investment to drive the climate transition, reflected in record issuance last year. The widening range of issuers includes companies and governments around the world, seeking investment to drive their plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and guard against physical climate risks.”
