Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) Assessments
Our clients are increasingly concerned about climate change, social responsibility and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) related issues, and wanting to align their investments more closely with their values. To help make responsible investment easier, all our multi-asset portfolios now receive two ESG integration assessments from independent research and consultancy firm, Square Mile.
At a company level – the first assessment measures ESG integration at a company level, this indicates how far along the journey of ESG integration the company is, and how committed it is to future improvement.
At fund level – the second assessment measures ESG at a portfolio level and highlights how much the manager uses ESG as an integrated part of their investment process.
The assessments range from 0 for no ESG integration, to 0+, 1, 1+, 2, 2+ and 3, the top ranking for ESG integration.
