Methodology
We are using a unique, fully automatic screening tool that brings together traditional financial data (Thomson Reuters/Lipper) and high value ESG- (MSCI ESG Research) as well as Carbon- (South Pole Group) Data. A fund's rating is constructed through a dynamic scoring methodology of the underlying holdings. The weighted average of the underlying assets is used to determine a fund’s ESG score as well as its carbon footprint. Any changes are directly reflected by the dynamic nature of the scoring methodology.
