FusionExperience offers Sustainable Investment Research Portal
Business and tech company FusionExperience has launched a Sustainable Investment Research Portal that enables asset managers to monitor the environmental conduct of companies clients invest in.
The new functionality provides investment fund boards and pension trustees with qualitative monitoring of sustainable conduct so asset managers can lobby for environmental performance improvement and monitor progress – all through an online client portal.
“Asset managers with sustainable investment portfolios are demanding, and need to be, absolutely certain that they are only making investments with reputable organisations,” said Tim Rudlin, product manager for EVM for Asset Managers.
“Validating classifications against standards for specific business sectors is not sufficient. Sustainable mandate checking requires detailed analysis of investments and personal lobbying of company directors, along with active participation in shareholder voting.”
The Sustainable Investment Research Portal includes functionality designed to easily capture information and report on breaches of the United Nations Global Compact and supporting analytic text.
Environmental, social and governance risk scores for individual companies can also be reported on the application interface and displayed as mini-dashboards for enhanced user experience. The information is delivered via the cloud through an online client portal that allows clients real-time access to results.
