ESG is not a monolith
ESG is an umbrella term that encompasses many different topics and issues such as climate change, human rights, animal welfare and corporate social responsibility.
Clients have different views on what constitutes a sustainable company or Fund and therefore view ESG in different ways, knowing how each client views these issues is important.
ESG connects better to data
An ESG label doesn’t always translate into desirable ESG improvements.
To choose funds with specific ESG performance, you’ll need impact-linked data to compare them to other funds.
Many clients don't want to dig into the data behind the fund, and ESG ratings don't take into account individual values.
