Portfolio ESG Optimization

The global pandemic put a spotlight on the value of environmental, social and corporate governance considerations in capital markets, accelerating demand for ESG investing and the opportunity to derive meaningful investment outcomes.

Powered by the SAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment and based on a methodology that was built by investment practitioners with investment processes in mind, S&P Global ESG Scores assess the ESG factors expected to have an impact on company value drivers – growth, profitability, capital efficiency and risk exposure.

Our ESG Data Signal? When applying an ESG framework to the portfolio construction process, the initial reaction may be to screen out the worst scoring companies and construct a portfolio from the remaining universe. However this exclusionary process can cause the resulting portfolio to drift from the benchmark’s characteristics. We show that it is possible to incorporate ESG scores into the portfolio construction process while not sacrificing the desired portfolio characteristics. This can likely be extended to using ESG as an overlay to other existing strategies.
