ESG in our Investments

Increasingly, we face a world of disruptive forces - geo-political, climate change, demographic shifts, resource availability, rapidly advancing technology, social cohesion, housing affordability and regulatory changes. Investors, firms and communities benefit from assessing these impacts and making thoughtful choices on how to move forward.

HaydenTanner identifies, evaluates environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risk and opportunity factors for our clients and throughout our investments. We have identified key metrics around these factors and evaluate investments, portfolios, companies and communities on their vulnerability and adaptive capacity .

with respect to climate change, geo-political regulatory, infrastructure, to apply for due diligence and monitoring purposes on a go forward basis.

We also put together ESG Annual Reports for our clients which includes progress and specific actions to improve ESG across their portfolios.

Based on research done by MSCI and others, there is a significant causal link between ESG and performance. The research, which examined 10 years of live ESG Ratings data of over 1,600 stocks, found that ESG affected the valuation and performance of companies both through their systematic risk profile (lower costs of capital and higher valuations) and their idiosyncratic risk profile (higher profitability and lower exposures to tail risk), and that changes in a company's ESG characteristics (ESG momentum) may be a useful financial indicator in its own right. we have looked at both stock-specific risks, which are linked to companies’ specific business model and risk management processes, as well as systematic risks, which are macroeconomic in nature and are linked to companies’ exposure to changes in the market environment, market prices or changes in regulation.
