01.2. Describe your reasons for choosing a particular ESG incorporation strategy and how combinations of strategies are used.

At Global Evolution, we have conducted extensive ground-breaking research into the relationship between sovereign debt investing and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) indicators. We have found clear correlation between the sovereign funding costs and ESG dynamics, with governance, unsurprisingly, the most prevalent.

The quantitative valuation models effectively provide us with statistically significant valuation signals that are partly based on ESG dynamics and partly based on macroeconomic, financial, and fiscal dynamics. The models provide us with such statistically significant valuation signals, i.e. “trade ideas”, at a weekly basis which informs our investment process.

By not integrating ESG dynamics into investment decisions, investors sacrifice essential information. Our quantitative approach reveals a clear ESG historical “dividend” which is conducive for a successful investment process. 


for those reasons we have chosen ESG strategies and combine various factors to become as well informed as possible
