ESG and CLOs

Investing in the CLO market remains a headache for LPs with ESG criteria. An increasing number of CLO managers market themselves as ESG compliant, but the market remains skeptical about how genuine they are – the recent Creditflux CLO Census revealed that the most common answer to which is the most ESG-aware US manager was “no-one”. What’s the solution for the growing number of LPs that need to track this metric in detail?

  • How much pressure do US LPs really feel on ESG?
  • Where is the CLO market on ESG criteria, and how do US and European CLOs differ?
  • Are CLO funds able to provide the metrics that LPs need?
  • How can the industry standardize reporting to reduce the duplication of effort, and are ESG ratings one answer?
