How to finance the recovery post-Covid -19 crisis and long-term inclusive growth ?
In line with our commitment to supporting new sustainable fixed income markets, Amundi has developed its first Social Bond Strategy, which aims at directing investments towards projects addressing social issues or targeting positive social outcomes by investing in social bonds.
Through this strategy, Amundi and its investors will support the expansion of the nascent social bond market, which has experienced a very strong uptick during the Covid-19 crisis and has proven its financing capabilities for both the recovery and inclusive growth in the long term.
The social impact investing expertise is based on three commitments:
1. Support companies over the long term by offering investment methods tailored to their own needs in terms of growth (capital or debt).
2. Diversify our selection of social businesses.
3. Publish transparent, concrete information, notably through a social impact report.
