Parametric - a leading systematic asset manager focused on delivering elevated, transparent, repeatable investment outcomes by bringing clarity and accessibility to investment science. Our approach to responsible investing focuses on exercising our ownership rights to encourage good governance practices in order to benefit shareholders while continuing to deliver the underlying strategy return. In our view, good governance includes a consideration of the environmental and social impact of a company's activities in order to reduce unnecessary risks and improve the company's competitive position. We reserve specialized portfolio construction techniques using ESG data primarily for client directed mandates in separately managed accounts. Parametric strives to be able to facilitate any ESG related theme that is important to its clients into a portfolio, assuming that the appropriate data is available. Parametric’s goal is not to provide an opinion about which themes are most important or to forecast returns based on these themes, but rather to provide a broad range of high-quality data that can be easily incorporated into any given investment mandate. The value-add is helping clients identify those responsible investing metrics which are most meaningful to their objectives and building a portfolio which performs in-line with their expectations.
Parametric's solutions apply ingenuity and scientific rigor to manage risks and controls costs across three main categories: better beta, non-traditional alpha and efficient portfolio implementation. Parametric manages assets on behalf of institutions, high-net-worth individuals and fund investors in the U.S. and internationally. Parametric is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Eaton Vance Corp. (NYSE: EV).
