Socially responsible investment

BBVA, as investor, has the duty to act in the best long-term of its beneficiaries interests. The environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues affect the performance of investment portfolios. This fiduciary role is aligned with our SRI policies and our commitment as a Principle for Responsible Investment (PRI) signatory. Our approach is based in the integration.

From the equity side, we are analysing the major European sectors, using a third party research. We identify the relevant issues from ESG perspective and ranking the companies in each sector according to their credentials.

In-house investment analyses process

Moreover, we have developed an in-house investment analyses process for global sovereign fixed income, which ranks leaders and laggards based on generally accepted United Nations and World Bank criteria.
