ESG Investor Benchmarking

ESG continues to grow in significance – it is crucial that corporates understand the wide range of investor expectations.

Gain valuable business intelligence on where your ESG profile stands against your peers.

Our service provides you with greater transparency about the ESG investors already on your register and which to target.

We will identify, track and benchmark ESG-focused funds, identifying ESG funds that are underweight or absent in you compared to your country and/or sector peers.

Targeting ESG investors

As part of our analysis, we break down your target list of ESG investors into active and passive pools and identify their investment potential at the fund level.

Additionally, we identify which indices are important to these funds and help you understand and implement the required measures and metrics to unlock access to these significant additional pools of capital.
