He explains how it supports our analysts and portfolio managers in their investment decisions and engagements, and in building portfolios with specific ESG criteria.
Insight's corporate debt portfolio managers can use the Prime corporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) ratings to identify potential ESG risks, inform their engagement, and to build portfolios with specific ESG criteria.
Information on material ESG risks can be crucial for effective investment decisions, but ESG data providers often disagree on the material risks for corporates, and there are gaps in available information.
The ratings are based on ESG data from multiple inputs, adjusted using our in-house expertise, and aim to more accurately and reliably reflect the risks that corporate issuers face.
The Prime corporate ESG ratings online tool aims to help you understand how Prime can help identify key ESG risks for corporate debt issuers, offering a simple visualisation of Prime ESG ratings by industry and region, highlighting notable results.
