Our ESG Data partners​

Our Approach to ESG ​

We consider Sustainability as a strategic challenge for companies, quantifiable via ESG data. ESG information allows us to assess companies’ corporate strategy and management quality to understand and address short-term risks, and the drive to innovate to capture long-term opportunities. Incorporating ESG data in portfolio construction allows us to offer portfolios that are:

  • Tailored to your preferences
  • Mitigating ESG risks and benefiting from transition opportunities (i.e. ESG Integration)
  • Aligned with thematic SDGs (e.g. Gender equality)
  • Meeting new regulatory requirements (e.g. SFDR)
  • Addressing global challenges (e.g. Net-Zero aligned)

ESG Book

ESG Book collects raw data for 30,000+ global companies, and assesses companies’ sustainability performance across different dimensions, namely:

  • ESG performance focusing on financial material topics
  • UNGC performance focusing on normative values
  • Net-Zero performance focusing on businesses’ climate action

Client Integration

  • Portfolio Dragon's open architecture and modular design have been designed to make it easy to integrate into clients’ existing applications and investment workflows.
  • We generate model portfolio holdings, which comprise a list of securities and their corresponding target weights at each rebalancing. This data is fed into clients’ investment workflow. The platform can support delivery across a range of interfaces, including API, SFTP etc.
  • The platform can provide portfolio analytics, across a range of financial and non-financial metrics.
  • Portfolio Dragon has a sales engineering team to support clients throughout the integration process. This may range from ad-hoc advice to the building of adaptors to 3rd party systems.
