ESG and Investor Relations

What …

ESG: environmental, social and governance reporting and performance analysis is to enable investors to assess sustainability criteria alongside more conventional financial analysis in the investment decision-making process. Numerous organizations, backed by institutional finance request information from companies to collect and assess company ESG practices.

Why …

The rise of ESG is unstoppable.  As Larry Fink said, “ESG will transform all investing”.  We agree.  There is extensive research and evidence illustrating that ESG portfolios outperform the market.  High ESG scores are considered a proxy for overall good corporate management.  High ESG scores also tends to indicate a company with a clearly understood and communicated corporate purpose.
