ESG in Asia/Pacific: who is (really) pushing for more transparency: what data do they want?

June 29, 2021 @ 9:30 am

Tuesday, June 29


ESG can cover a broad range attributes such as climate change, content governance and cybersecurity to gender-pay equity, board diversity, human rights and workplace sexual harassment.  Asset managers have a requirement to disclose how they voted on portfolio company ballots.  The Asian trading and investment community is dominated by retail/High Net Worth investors.  Is ESG is being used as a regional “buy-side magnet”; are Asia family offices and retail investors really pushing for more transparency in this area?

  • Where does the data come from; how is the data verified for accuracy?
  • How do investors receive the data: from exchange and data vendor feeds? 
  • Are traditional Portfolio / Risk Management systems being used to process and analyse the data; how?
  • How does an information provider / market data vendor detect and avoid “green washing”?
  • Are the FinTechs and Unicorns leading, lagging  or dismissive of ESG?
