MSCI ESG Portfolio Analytics: Measuring and Benchmarking ESG Risks
Demand for ESG integration is growing as asset owners and managers are becoming increasingly aware of the potential risk and impact ESG factors can have on the long-term risk and return profile of investment portfolios.
However, it remains a challenge for many to evaluate their portfolio’s ESG risks and ultimately assess how effectively ESG factors are integrated into the investment process. In addition, the lack of ESG data, ratings, and tools in traditional risk management and portfolio construction applications has made it more difficult to fully incorporate ESG factors into existing investment management strategies.
Please join us for a product launch webinar introducing MSCI ESG Portfolio Analytics, a unique reporting tool for measuring and benchmarking the ESG characteristics of portfolios. By using MSCI ESG Portfolio Analytics, asset owners and managers can satisfy reporting needs and requirements, including those of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI); conduct internal ESG risk assessment; and identify targets for company engagement. Asset owners can also use the reports to inform the manager selection process and evaluate how managers assess and respond to ESG risks.
During the session, we will also provide information about the integration of ESG data into MSCI’s BarraOne and Barra Portfolio Manager applications for use in risk management and portfolio construction and optimization strategies.
