Our proprietary ESG overlay is centered around our quantitative, multi-factor Corporate Governance model, with increasing scrutiny over the disclosure of Carbon data within company filings. We aggregate and synthesize public data, examine Board construction, inter- and intra-company relationships, and other factors to quantitatively evaluate companies in our universe, producing numeric ESG scores as well as sector and universe rankings – all in order to help investors better understand the ESG positioning of potential investments.
