ESG ratings and what does this mean for you?

ESG ratings are a numerical measure of how a company is perceived to be performing on environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics.

A lower ESG-risk rating is better and means that the company is less exposed to ESG risks and better at managing them.

Equities and bonds are screened with ESG Select screen, and companies flagged by our screens are excluded.

Debunking ESG investing myths

Myth 1: ESG underperforms

Many studies have debunked the idea that you have to sacrifice financial gains to make a positive impact. A 2020 research from data provider Morningstar examining the long-term performance of a sample of sustainable funds shows that the majority of these funds have done better than non-ESG funds over one, three, five and 10 years.

Myth 2: The "feel good" factor

Sustainable investing is more than doing good, it can be a longer-term measurement of a company’s financial health and returns. In fact, applying ESG factors provides yet another risk management lens.

Myth 3: Just climate change

Beyond just the environmental factors, sustainable investing also addresses corporate governance and social factors, business ethics and supply chain issues.
