State Street Global High Yield Bond ESG Screened Index Strategy

The State Street Global High Yield Bond ESG Screened Index Strategy offers investors cost-effective, reliable access to the global high yield market. 

Head of Fixed Income Strategists, EMEA

Indexed high yield is of increasing interest to investors:

  • Delivers Diversification & Transparent Outcomes
    Structural developments in high yield markets have now made indexing in this complex exposure viable for sophisticated and experienced index managers.
  • Cost-Efficient Alternative to Active
    Indexing offers a cost-efficient, reliable and transparent alternative to gain exposure to high yield. It can complement the higher tracking, defensive styles, and the often lower liquidity, of active approaches.
  • Alpha Deterioration
    Alpha generation has been on a downward trend in high yield with few managers outperforming consistently. Net of high active fees, alpha generation has become even more elusive.
  • ESG Incorporation
     Indexed solutions allow managers to efficiently incorporate ESG considerations in a systemic, transparent manner.
