As quantitative investors, it is not our practice to engage directly with managements on strategic or financial issues. We believe the numbers tell the story. So, our engagement platform is focused on data, both with non-disclosers and poor quality in disclosed ESG data.
In our investment process, we use also data collected by Sustainalytics and CDP, and we will engage with these service providers about the quality of their data, if we see any issues. We believe that this is an additional way of improving the overall ecosystem for responsible investment.
We are also very activist in the sense that we regularly give speeches, as well as engage with asset owners and though leaders one on one, in private settings and at public gatherings on topics related to ESG integration, how to use their investment power to influence what companies actually do, and to attempt to find solutions to some of the very vexing problems faced by the world at large.
