Our services

Investor ESG Solutions to help investors to integrate ESG considerations into their asset management process.

We assist asset owners and asset managers in the elaboration and normalisation of their Responsible Investment policies. We help our clients to fully integrate the ESG and Climate Risk criteria into their investment management strategy by providing them with comprehensive research, assessment and reporting solutions covering large asset classes (equity, bonds, real estate, etc.) and all major listed and unlisted company profiles (large caps and SMEs of all major sectors and geographic locations).

To expand our large cap research, we use the most reliable data sources, including publicly available data as well as proprietary data from a selection of professional data providers.

To enhance our approach, we developed an in-house research framework “Gaia” which offers a unique extra-financial analysis expertise on Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

Corporate ESG and CSR Services to help companies to develop a strong CSR culture.

Since 2010 EthiFinance developed a solid experience in corporate ESG and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) consulting activities.

To meet the needs of companies in terms of CSR engagement EthiFinance developed 3 main services:

  • Assess: evaluate the level of the maturity of a CSR strategy (identification of key CSR issues through materiality matrices and ESG risk mapping; creation of sectorial benchmarks)
  • Articulate: elaborate CSR strategies, policies and action plans
  • Assist: consult on green procurement strategies, business ethics, efficient governance and external stakeholder relations.
