ESG can cover a broad range attributes such as climate change, content governance and cybersecurity to gender-pay equity, board diversity, human rights and workplace sexual harassment. Asset managers have a requirement to disclose how they voted on portfolio company ballots. The Asian trading and investment community is dominated by retail/High Net Worth investors. Is ESG is being used as a regional “buy-side magnet”; are Asia family offices and retail investors really pushing for more transparency in this area?
- Where does the data come from; how is the data verified for accuracy?
- How do investors receive the data: from exchange and data vendor feeds?
- Are traditional Portfolio / Risk Management systems being used to process and analyse the data; how?
- How does an information provider / market data vendor detect and avoid “green washing”?
- Are the FinTechs and Unicorns leading, lagging or dismissive of ESG?
