ESG reporting for your white label funds

ESG reporting offers new opportunities


Thanks to Universal Investment’s independent ESG reporting system, you can rate the sustainability of your fund portfolios. Our reporting model uses reliable indicators for ESG-based investment strategies.

The ESG reporting tool analyses a portfolio’s overall level of sustainability and identifies any potential ESG weaknesses. What is in it for you? You receive a holistic overview of the environmental, social and governance standards of your investments as well information on the key drivers behind your portfolio’s sustainability score. MSCI®, a leading global research group, delivers the data required. The MSCI® database leverages its aggregated ESG scores of global investments (MSCI® is a registered trademark of MSCI Inc.).

Agenda 2030

Balancing financial and ESG compliance

Since the ratification of the Paris climate goals for 2030, sustainable returns require redirected capital flows. ESG reporting covers the traditional presentation of allocations and monitors the overall context of the portfolio. The goal is to deliver a balance between returns and ESG compliance. Universal Investment’s ESG reporting system provides an overview of a fund’s key sustainability criteria and offers a comparison with ESG benchmarks and market benchmarks.

Top 10 ESG positions and the top 10 flops

Universal Investment adopts a convincing top-down approach for its ESG reporting: after general information follows an analysis of individual portfolio positions which are performing particularly well (the top 10) and which are performing particularly badly (the flop 10). Business involvement evaluations and impact monitoring indicate the proportion of controversial industries, countries and practices represented in the portfolio. A carbon footprint calculation can also be provided for each individual industry.

Relevant benchmarks and ESG controversies

ESG reporting specialists at Universal Investment are on hand to help you find the right benchmarks for your ESG reporting setup. The business involvement analysis included in our services is underpinned by data from MSCI®. Exclusion criteria can therefore be established for companies that generate revenues from controversial business areas, violate ESG standards and regulation or are subject to sanctions.
