Goldman Sachs AM Unveils Corporate Impact, Green Bond Funds

Goldman Sachs Asset Management (AM) has launched the Goldman Sachs Global Impact Corporate Bond Fund and the Goldman Sachs USD Green Bond Fund. The funds aim to enable fixed income investors to “enhance the sustainability profile of their portfolios through an allocation to green, social and sustainability bonds”. The Article 9-compliant Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation funds use the asset manager’s green and impact bonds assessment methodology to select bonds that finance “impactful” environmental, social or sustainability projects. The corporate bond fund targets investment in green, social and sustainable bonds across the corporate credit spectrum that have “clearly defined” social or environmental objectives and impact. The green bond fund invests globally in corporate and government bonds and investment grade credit, building on Goldman Sachs AM’s existing green bonds range through offering global alternative for clients seeking USD-denominated exposure. The firm recently passed US$9 billion in dedicated green bond AuM. Hilary Lopez, Head of EMEA Third Party Wealth at Goldman Sachs AM, said: “An increasingly wide range of investors would like to direct their capital towards companies solving clear social and environmental challenges. These two funds enable investors to tap into growing areas of opportunity and diversify their fixed income portfolios, while helping to finance impactful environmental, social and sustainability projects.”
