Osmosis launched in 2009 and is an award-winning sustainable investment manager based in London. Osmosis has developed a proprietary model of resource efficiency (the “MoRE Model”) looking at the world’s largest public companies in developed global markets which generates a Resource Efficiency Factor Score which Osmosis calculates on a systematic basis using a proprietary resource efficiency valuation metric derived from observed amounts of energy consumed, water use, and waste created relative to revenue generated for each company in this global large cap universe.
Osmosis takes a rounded approach investing through the whole economy, addressing both supply and demand, targeting excess return whilst simultaneously delivering better environmental foot prints to relative benchmarks.
Objectively analysing corporate sustainability data allows us to identify an uncorrelated source of alpha in publicly listed companies. The identification of companies that are measuring, managing and reducing their resource consumption while capitalising on this rising demand will deliver greater shareholder returns over the longer term.
This informational advantage when applied to a systematic quantitative approach creates investment portfolios that deliver superior risk-adjusted returns over the long-term while significantly reducing their draw on natural resources and so investor’s holdings have a much lower environmental footprint relevant to market benchmarks.
Sustainability and excess return need not be mutually exclusive.
