Sustainable Investing Research

More than two decades of Sustainable Investing research have equipped us with the tools and the unique expertise needed to define financially-material ESG information, integrate it into a wide-range of investment products, and measure its impact.

Sustainability and financial materiality

Sustainability and financial materiality

Sustainable investing research focuses on the link between sustainability and financial materiality. But what is financial materiality, exactly? Elina Hokkanen explains how we determine the financial relevance of sustainability criteria.

Mapping, measuring & monitoring SDGs

Investors are increasingly interested in investments that both contribute to realizing the SDGs, while providing financial returns. We are among the first investment managers to construct an effective framework for mapping and measuring SDG contributions that can be applied across investment portfolios.

Analyzing countries' ESG performance

Analyzing countries' ESG performance

The Country Sustainability Ranking is a comprehensive framework for analyzing countries' ESG performance. By focusing on ESG factors, we offer a view into a country's strengths and weaknesses that are not typically covered by rating agencies. The ranking can be a powerful tool to enhance risk analysis for government bonds.

Environmental Impact Monitoring

Measuring a portfolio's environmental footprint demonstrates the magnitude of its impact across four key environmental indicators. Based on results, investors can more fully optimize their impact preferences – maximizing positive or reducing negative environmental impacts within equity and credit portfolios.
