Sustainability insights for strategic advantage

Institutional investors now expect fund managers and asset operators to integrate sustainability and ESG considerations into their business. This means collecting reliable data and reporting on sustainability performance so that it’s transparent and comparable to other investments.

In today’s investment landscape, sustainability and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is not just a trend or reporting burden—it’s a critical factor for success, building organizational resilience and delivering improved returns. Globally, governments, investors, and society as a whole are increasingly turning their attention towards the need for sustainable and resilient real assets. 

Starting to measure, report, and improve sustainability performance can offer opportunities to more easily access capital, engage investors, manage risk, stay ahead of regulations, and improve financial returns. 

How to make the most of sustainability insights? 

Sustainability-related insights derived from the fund- and asset-level details can deliver significant advantage.

  • Improved financial performance: increase the value of your funds, asset by asset
  • Risk management: proactively address and mitigate sustainability-related risks 
  • Operational efficiency: identify opportunities to reduce costs and improve performance
  • Compliance & competitive edge: meet regulatory requirements and exceed investor expectations
  • Enhanced reputation: attract more investors by demonstrating commitment to sustainable practices
