Sustainable Leaders

Finding ESG Leaders

Our Unique in-house scoring methodology allows us to rank our continually expanding universe of stocks (currently over 7000) into 1 of 4 Environmental, Social and Governance categories:


• Leaderplus
• Leader
• Neutral
• Laggard


We have selected a specific set of continuous, trend and binary variables to ensure firms are ranked in alignment with our values, investment philosophy and across internationally recognised metrics.

Fund managers alignment with ESG goals

This method provides us with a tool we use to scale up our analysis at a fund level. It enables our investment team to understand the individual E,S & G composition of a fund, and therefore, to what degree a fund managers portfolio is aligned with our ESG priorities. We calculate a stocks contribution to a fund, which provides us with easily comparable figures across the 4 categories. For example, we prefer fund managers that allocate a higher proportion of client capital towards ESG Leaders and above in their portfolios versus their respective policy benchmark.

Portfolio view

The categories can be scored upwards to a portfolio level view. Providing clients with a unique and understandable ESG lens with respect to their portfolios.
