Investor interest in environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices is now pervasive. Across the globe, ESG factors are viewed as critical to a company’s risk profile and advocacy for ESG consideration is broadening. Investment firms need to react.
ESG program development is dynamic and complex. With regulatory interest in ESG mounting on top of a steady increase in investor ESG information requests, investment firms struggle to answer pointed questions and meet related demands. Not fulfilling representations around ESG practices can have costly regulatory and financial consequences.
Foreseeing the impact of the ESG movement on U.S. investment practices, Silver was among the first to develop ESG advisory services for investment firms. Silver partners with clients to meet stakeholder expectations by integrating ESG practices into a firm’s investment processes. We build ESG programs that withstand investor scrutiny and address the evolving regulatory environment.
