Michael Hintze’s hedge fund is mulling a green collateralized loan obligation in Europe as it expands its slate of socially responsible investments.

In a letter to investors seen by Bloomberg, Hintze said CQS is investigating a European CLO aligned with environmental, social and governance criteria. About 60% of CQS’s $21.6 billion of assets under management are already so-called Article 8 mandates, which promote ESG investments, the letter said.
