ESG Research by Sustainalytics Carried on Bloomberg -The Minute
Investors who rely on Bloomberg Professional Service data will now have access to environmental, social and governance research assessments produced by Sustainalytics, a global investment firm that specializes in sustainability research and analysis. All Bloomberg Professional Service users will have access to Sustainalytics' proprietary indicators, measurements that provide a macro level assessment of how companies are managing their ESG capital. Subscribers to both platforms will be able to review more in-depth insights into 1600 global, developed markets, ranked against industry peers across 15 performance indicators. The coverage includes analysis of a company's management and risk exposure, thematic as well as overall ESG scores, and momentum trends in ESG programs and practices. In coming months, historical ESG scores dating back to 2009 will become available, allowing investors to track performance over time. According to Bloomberg, the collaboration is the result of an annual increase of 48 percent in its customers using ESG data. Bloomberg and Sustainalytics say that ESG information is becoming a critical element in the decision making process of investors, and another indication that sustainability is being mainstreamed in capital markets.

Bloomberg Terminal Financial Analysis Function
Script (Bloomberg Terminal Video) Hello, my name is Tyler and I am a finance business student at the University of South Carolina at Aiken. Today I will be talking about the finance analysis function. I have accessed Apple Equity for my example. However, you can choose any company for your analysis. Choose you company and choose FA in the drop-down menu and it will bring you to a page simpler to mine. Tab 1 of the FA function is the key stats page that are most commonly used, such as, adjustment highlights, GAAP highlights, earning, enterprise value, multiples, per share, and stock value. Tab 2 include the entire income statement from revenue, gross profit, operating income, pretax income, all the way down to net income. Tab 3 is your balance sheet. It includes your assets, liabilities, and equities. Tab 4 is your cash flow tab. It includes your cash from operating activities, cash from investing activities, and other cash flow functions. Tab 5 is your ratio tab. It includes ratios on returns, margins, additional information. It also includes ratios on growth, credit, liquidity, working capital, yield analysis, and also the DuPont analysis. Tab 6 is your segment tab. It segments the company into revenue number of units sold, number of stores. It also segments it off into geographical location and other segments. Tab 7 is your additional tab. It includes things like retail, software, benchmarks, obligations, pensions, options, employee data. It also includes things like dividends and other specific information the company want to share. Tab 8 is the environmental social corporate governance tab. It includes information about their environmental disclosure information about their water use, emissions, and other environmental factors. Their also scored on their social disclosure score and their government disclosure score. This tab also includes things about their ratios involving the environment. Lastly, tab 9, which is your custom tab. Which you can choose to customize however you would like. However, my favorite thing about the Financial analysis function is the output section at the top where it is red and says 97). You can choose to output all the information and data in the FA function into a PDF or excel spreadsheet that can be used to edit for your analysis.

What is ESG Investing?
http://www.Gabelli.com Gabelli managing director of ESG, Christina Alfandary discusses the importance and impact of ESG investing. If you liked this video subscribe to our channel! Invest with Us 1-800-GABELLI (800-422-3554) http://facebook.com/gabellitv GabelliTV Footage Credit: Author: mediagl Author webpage: https://vimeo.com/mediagl Author: Alexander Eberle Author webpage: https://vimeo.com/alexandereberle Author: Tim Williams @timallday Author webpage: https://vimeo.com/timw Author: mediagl Author webpage: https://vimeo.com/mediagl Transcript: Gabelli recently presented a session on Environmental, Social and Governance investing to RIAs at a major Conference . We wanted to highlight some key takeaways. First, ESG, Impact and Sustainable investing is becoming increasingly recognized as a way for asset managers, and asset owners to use a broader set of information to evaluate companies’ risk exposure to natural resource constraints. It provides insight into overall quality of management. This is supported by several academic research studies. Integrated ESG investing is not about negative screening anymore but about identifying companies that have better ways of managing a business which is forward looking. Research has shown that top ESG scoring companies often outperform the market over the long run with lower volatility. For this reason, financial advisers should recognize that Sustainable Investing is becoming more important and mainstream to both institutional and individual investors. The Second Takeaway is that With 30 trillion of wealth anticipated to transfer over the next decades from Baby Boomers to GenX and Millennials, it is notable that Millennials and women are particularly interested in ESG and responsible investing. Surveys show 73% of Millennials and 60% of women investors consider these issues. . Whereas Baby Boomers made their money and gave it away through philanthropy, Millennials are committed to doing something impactful with their investments immediately. AND ESG investing has evolved beyond just feeling good. By investing in companies which are managing resources better, It is about mobilizing capital to address large, global challenges like climate change, water scarcity, Product quality, employee safety and business ethics. The next generation is committed to using investments to positively change corporate responsibility and the world. We would point out that while studies show many investors would base purchasing decisions on personal values, less than 15% say they understand how to invest their money in a way that supports their values. The majority of individual have not yet heard of sustainable or responsible investing. So at Gabelli Funds, we see Advisers and asset managers playing a key role in educating investors about this important and growing area . 61% of investors indicate their Adviser has not mentioned sustainable investing to them. We suggest Advisers think about ways to engage their clients on ESG investing. This might be connecting it to personal interests or using it as a bridge from one generation into the next generation. We see Millennial investors become interested when they feel connected to what their investments might accomplish for more than just themselves. Advisers should see ESG and Impact Investing as the next step of GOALS based investing. Lastly, Because Gabelli has 30 yrs of experience in Responsible Investing and we are integrating ESG factors more in the way we look at companies, we welcome opportunities to partner with advisers as they educate their clients in the important area of ESG investing. It Is about People, the Planet and Profits

Is Your Board Prepared for the Rise in ESG Activism?
Host: TK Kerstetter Guest: Granville Martin, SVP & General Counsel, Society for Corporate Governance At the board and management level, ESG responsibilities (Environmental, Social & Governance) have historically been considered secondary or even tertiary board issues. Too often, boards narrowly relegate “ESG” to a single aspect, such as emissions or political spending. The ESG umbrella, however, is very broad, and boards are finding themselves devoting more and more attention at the request (or demand) of their investors. In this episode, Granville Martin, the SVP and General Counsel for the Society of Corporate Governance, joins host TK Kerstetter to discuss the increasing importance of ESG oversight in today’s boardrooms. One of the things that has changed over the last five to ten years is the volume and frequency at which investors have begun to ask questions. At the same time, boards have become more involved with their own investors, so they’re hearing [more about ESG]. There’s now a ‘push me, pull you’ dynamic. – Granville Martin, SVP & GC, Society of Corporate Governance There’s no doubt that ESG reporting has become more prevalent. Five years ago, only 20% of the S&P 500 was reporting ESG metrics. In 2015, that number more than quadrupled to 81% (per a PwC Governance Insights Center report). As Martin explains, some boards may already be overseeing and reporting on ESG-related issues; now they need to communicate their efforts using the proper nomenclature. This episode addresses several critical questions for boards: – What are the main components of ESG that boards often overlook? – Why has ESG garnered increasing attention in the last few years? – What can boards do to keep pace with everything that’s happening?
Sustainable Investment: Geneva Capital Discusses Socially Responsible, SRI, ESG & Impact Investing
Sustainable Investment at http://www.GenevaCapitalSA.com - Swiss-based Private Equity Advisor Geneva Capital S.A. Founding Partner R. Scott Arnell discusses Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Enviromental Social Governance (ESG) & Impact Investing in Frontier Markets with Jill Malandrino on The Street, an independent US-based financial news and services website co-founded by Jim Cramer, author and host of CNBC's show 'Mad Money' (produced by NBCUniversal News Group, a division of NBCUniversal, owned by Comcast [ CMCSA ]). https://youtu.be/lToUcsegiEM Originally published January 16, 2015. Jill Malandrino: Scott, explain to us what socially responsible investment is, and where has the growth come from in this market? Scott Arnell: Socially responsible investing, sustainable investing is an approach to investing that incorporates and integrates extra-financial data into the investment decision-making process. There are a lot of different ways that this is done, but the objectives are generally the same - that is to achieve competitive or superior market returns, while advancing the values of the institution or the investor that's behind it. Now, it's been growing at double-digit rates all across the different categories in Europe - between 11 and 52% in terms of assets-under-management over the last couple of years. The largest SRI, responsible investing category is exclusion, or sometimes referred to as negative screening. In that type of a strategy, the investment universe necessarily excludes investments in certain types of companies or certain types of stocks. So, examples of that would be investments in tobacco companies may be excluded or companies of cluster munitions or landmines or perhaps investment in companies that have business relations with the Sudanese government. The fastest-growing category in sustainable investment, socially responsible investing in terms of growth, albeit from a smaller base, is impact investing and this is where the investor tries to improve conditions on a socio-economic or environmental basis through the investing process. Some examples of that might be investing in housing for low income families, or in companies that are promoting fair-trade coffee in South America or Africa. Now the growth has always been driven in terms of absolute assets-under-management from pension funds, institutional investors and sovereign wealth funds. Where I work, in Europe, there is legislation in many countries like the UK, France, Germany that requires pension funds and public investment funds to disclose how is their portfolio is impacting social or environmental ESG concerns as well as the investment process. Jill Malandrino: Well your clients are all institutional-based, so the question of does this limit diversification where performance... it's a little bit different than a retail investor, because that would be the obvious question, there are other ways for them to improve performance, but looking at it on an absolute basis, when you employ SRI, do you lose any advantage because of less diversification or missing some of the performances of excluded stocks? Scott Arnell: That is a very good question, and when a client is thinking of getting into SRI, socially responsible investing / sustainable investment, that is the first question that they ask, and consequently, we have looked at that a lot. There are several studies out there and a lot of work that has been done, and I haven’t seen anything that indicates that you will necessarily under-perform the market by excluding aspects in your investing universe especially with the types of industries that typically get excluded in responsible investing. On the other hand, there have been studies out there that are promoting the idea that you will outperform the market by having responsible investing type portfolio. I don’t think the results on that are conclusive either. At the same time, I think there's a growing consensus that companies that do integrate sustainable investing, environmental social and governance, ESG - type factors in their business model and in their management, are better-managed companies and will outperform over the long run, nevertheless most funds and businesses are reporting results on a monthly or quarterly basis. It depends on your investment horizon. Jill Malandrino: OK thanks very much Scott for joining us. For The Street in New York, I'm Jill Malandrino.

Sustainalytics CEO Michael Jantzi on Measuring ESG Performance
Sustainalytics CEO Michael Jantzi describes how Sustainalytics Measures Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) performances of companies: " We very much take a best-of-sector approach because that is generally the way investors look at these issues. It's usually not highlight the best companies in the world for me, it's usually well I am looking at the oil sector, I am looking at the financial services sector, tell me what companies within the sectors are doing a better job than their industry counterparts. And the reality is that if you are looking at an oil and gas company versus a bank, the environmental and social challenges are very different. So we are comparing apples to apples, oranges to oranges. What do we benchmark against, what are best practices in the industry and we will look at if it's a global multinational wherever they are operating, you would expect them, or we expect them to operate to the highest standards, whether they are in North America, Europe or in a less developed economy, and some other part of the world. We look at international standards and norms, and so whether it's on environmental issues, whether it's on human right's issues, whether it's on issues like landmines or whatever it might be, there are growing number of international conventions that are out there, that set a global standard again, that is precedent setting for wherever we are in the world. So it's best practices, it's international law, international norms and standards, it's not something that Sustainalytics stands up and says we think this is the way it should be necessarily. It's that 20 years of experience underpinned by the global knowledge. I think there are some core issues that transcend national boundary. So human rights is one of those things and then understanding that generally wherever companies operate, they need to respect human rights. Environment is another issue that is justcore to our clients and our clients whether in the United States or Canadaacross Europe and Australia or Asia, environmental issues are core and of course there the issue of climate change remains a paramount issue. But then there are other social environmental issues that find themselves either higher or lower on the agenda, depending on where you are. So for example, nuclear energy is something that for whatever reason finds itself at most times higher in a European context in places like the UK, Germany, for example. But in France it's not particularly an alien issue, so there are regional disparities in some of the issues that are out there."

ESG Investing Gets Boost from New Scoring System - The Minute
The fast-moving trend to integrate ESG factors into investment decision-making just took another sharp turn upward. Morningstar, a research firm that tracks the holdings of 200,000 global managed financial products, will launch the first ESG scores for global mutual and exchange-traded funds later this year. The scores will be based on ESG ratings from Sustainalytics, a provider of ESG ratings and research on more than 4,000 companies. For the first time, investors will be able to compare funds across categories, over time, using new standards for benchmarking mutual funds and ETFS against ESG factors globally. How will this work? Morningstar will create asset-weighted composite ESG fund scores based on Sustainalytics’s company-level ESG ratings. This new program should substantially increase the already fast-growing amount of investment dollars flowing into responsible investment, now pegged at $59 trillion. A recent study by the Morgan Stanley Institute for Sustainable Investing found that 71 percent of individual investors are interested in sustainable investing. This development is the latest evidence that ESG issues are moving into mainstream investment practice. Read more: http://bit.ly/1JmVvCI © 2015 | 3BL Media | All Rights Reserved

Sustainability is becoming the latest “comparative advantage” for most listed companies all over the world. HKEx also made Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) reporting mandatory since 1-Jan-2016. The global standards for sustainability reporting (i.e. GRI Standards) have also been launched in Oct 2016 which gives companies a common language and a convenient tool for disclosing non-financial information. The new GRI standards replace the GRI G4 Guidelines, and completely phase out the G4 Guidelines on 1 July 2018. In September 2016, The Hong Kong Business Sustainability Index measured the top 20 Hang Seng Index constituent companies mean score was 57.25 which was categorizes as the “Learner Stage” So how to move to “Experienced Stage”?

New Numbers Show Increased Profits from ESG, Climate Action, & Sustainability Communications
The bottom line is getting a boost these days from increased profits driven by a number of sustainability factors. A recent study by New Amsterdam Partners finds that stocks with higher ESG ratings deliver superior returns and lower price volatility. New Amsterdam used the Thomson Reuters Corporate Responsibility Ratings, developed with S-Network, to conduct several tests. One example compared 100 randomly selected and equally weighted 40-stock portfolios with an identically created set, except that the lowest 10 percent of ESG companies were removed in the second set. The returns were higher for this second group of portfolios, the ones without the companies that performed poorly by ESG measures, in five of the six years surveyed. CDP, formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project, has released a study that shows a connection between financial profitability and business leadership on climate action. Their report shows an 18 percent higher return on equity by companies addressing climate change over their peers, and a 67 percent higher return than companies that do not disclose on climate change. Dividends to shareholders were also higher, by 21 percent. And at last week’s Sustainable Brands New Metrics ’14 conference, Amy Fenton of Nielsen reported a five percent increase in sales for brands that communicate their sustainability messages. These numbers tell the story: sustainable business is profitable business. I’m John Howell for 3BL Media. © 2014 | 3BL Media | All Rights Reserved
