Our CEO Walter Gontarek chaired the recent panel on “ESG and private debt” at Thursday’s ExCred Series. Panellists included leading professionals from the asset management, advisory and commercial banking sectors. The panel session included a live poll from the audience, validating a near 100% compliance with sustainability aims.
One of the key take-aways noted included the challenge and even convergence associated with ESG and credit data. Thse challenges can become profound in both SME and the non-IG sectors. However, other participants noted increasing quality of data – both credit and alternative – tackling this issue.
