Our services

Investor ESG Solutions to help investors to integrate ESG considerations into their asset management process.

We assist asset owners and asset managers in the elaboration and normalisation of their Responsible Investment policies. We help our clients to fully integrate ESG and Climate Risk criteria into their investment management strategy by providing them with comprehensive research, assessment and reporting solutions covering large asset classes (equity, bonds, real estate, etc.) and all major listed and unlisted company profiles (large caps and Small & Medium Enterprises -SMEs- in all major sectors and geographical locations).

To expand our large cap research, we use the most reliable data sources, including publicly available data as well as proprietary data from a selection of professional data providers.

To enhance our approach, we have developed an in-house research framework Gaia which offers an unrivalled non-financial analysis expertise on SMEs.

Corporate ESG and CSR Services to help companies to develop a strong CSR culture.

  • Articulation: elaborating CSR strategies, policies and action plans
