ESG Analytics / Sustainabilty Analytics & Ratings


Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Investing is rapidly expanding due to a growing interest among asset managers and other institutional stakeholders to invest in capital that is socially responsible. Our Sustainability and ESG analytics provide you with data-driven insights to direct your ESG strategy.

Also known as Impact Investing, ESG is premised on the assumption that the long-term growth of the financial sector is dependent on the strength of our environment, society and institutional frameworks. The advent of the Novel coronavirus (Covid-19) blatantly highlighted the impact our public environment and society can have on our market-based economy. It fostered urgent debate about the importance of social capital and investor responsibility.

At Foresight, we believe in the value of ESG Investing when done right. Providing ESG-focused services ranging from ESG strategy, data-based diagnostics and risk and quality-based assessments to effective fund due diligence. As thought leaders in ESG analytics, we work with a range of fund managers to ensure that they can optimize social and financial returns.

Assessing the quality of ESG funds and measuring impact requires more than just data. That is why at Foresight, we embrace a 360-degree framework that involves quantitative and qualitative methods to truly identify and optimize your impact advantage.

Carbon Risk Analysis

Foresight uses Scope 1-3 carbon metrics in conjunction to its risk and quality-based data to assess a Fund’s Carbon Emission footprint. Our carbon data and analytics can help investors answer questions like:

  •   What are the largest contributors and what are the effects of investment allocation and selection decisions on the portfolio’s relative emissions to its benchmark?
  • What is the weighted average carbon density of a portfolio and what are the potential carbon-related market and regulatory risks?
  • Analytical Framework for ESG Integration

    Using a range of key decision drivers such as ESG risks, controversial business exposure, product involvement, environmental risks and SDG level impact, our framework provides a 360-degree perspective on constructing a competitive ESG portfolio.

    Our framework is guided by unique data-driven research and human-based insights. Our risk-based assessment framework utilizes holdings-based analysis of security-level data.
