Climate Change – Low Carbon and Resource Efficiency
In enlisting prospects to be added to our platform, we consider how managers invest in companies that provide solutions to directly tackle climate change issues.
We have an active search on long-only and long/short strategies that invest in companies providing solutions to tackle climate change. We are also looking into green bond strategies.
ESG Survey to investment managers
We asked all investment managers on our platform to fill out an ESG survey and analyzed the survey result in early 2017. The RFI asks questions about the diversity of the firm, whether the firm is a PRI signatories, if the firm publishes ESG reports and how many ESG strategies they have.
We had over 140 responses from investment managers on our platform. We shared the results with our broader analyst team and captured their feedback.
New ESG Thematic Strategies
In 2017, the firm brought on 3 thematically focused strategies under analyst coverage– 1 strategy focuses on water and 2 strategies focus on gender lens investing.
There are more thematic ESG options available for our financial advisors to implement on behalf of clients.
