Fund managers are turning to an unusual place to lead the charge in ESG and Emerging markets. Emerging markets typically have little association with green investments which is precisely why Nordea Bank Abp is investing here. They expect to see higher yields with similar risks to ESG in developed countries. There are challenges to investing in the region; many firms are unaware of ESG at all. Nonetheless, emerging market ESG government bonds have outperformed standard emerging market government bonds since the start of the year. Additionally, new grading systems are being prepared to prevent companies from overselling their green viability, known as greenwashing.
