Where and how do you source your data?
We engage with underlying companies and investments to collect ESG data straight from the source. To avoid a painful and laboursome data collection process, we provide a combination of a slick, intuitive software platform with the expertise of our analysts to verify the accuracy of every datapoint. Our client relationship managers support portfolios and individual companies through this process to ensure all relevant data is captured.
The data we provide is based on the 12+ leading international standards, often the forerunners to regulation, that make up our dataset. Our process of consolidating, not complicating, the ESG universe gives our clients the confidence that they can seamlessly and accurately report against the rapidly shifting regulatory landscape.
