It is must-read material for all serious credit investors."

--Eduard van Gelderen, Chief Investment Officer, Public Sector Pension Investment Board, Canada

"The rise of a systematic approach in credit is a logical extension of the market's evolution and long overdue. Barclays QPS team does a great job of presenting its latest research in a practical manner."
--David Horowitz, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer, Agilon Capital, USA

You will gain insights into the advanced methodologies of combining fundamental and market data. I recommend this book for all credit investors."

The proprietary research in this volume gives a global overview of cutting-edge developments in alpha generation for credit investors, from signal extraction and ESG considerations to portfolio implementation. The book blazes a trail for enhanced risk adjusted returns by exploring the cross-asset relation between stocks and bonds and adding relevant information for credit portfolio construction.

"This book is a treasure trove for both pension investors and trustees seeking to improve performance through credit. It provides a wealth of empirical evidence to guide long-term allocation to credit, optimize portfolio construction and harvest returns from systematic credit factors. By extending their research to ESG ratings, the authors also provide timely insights in the expanding field of sustainable finance."
--Eloy Lindeijer, former Chief of Investment Management, PGGM, Netherlands

"Over more than a decade, Lev Dynkin and his QPS team has provided me and APG with numerous innovative insights in credit markets. Their work gave us valuable quantitative substantiation of some of our investment beliefs. This book covers new and under-researched areas of our markets, like ESG and factor investing, next to the rigorous and practical work akin to the earlier work of the group. I'd say read this book--and learn from one of the best."
--Herman Slooijer, Managing Director, Head of Fixed Income, APG Asset Management, Netherlands
