Why ESG?

Managers that understand the importance of ESG information know that good business also means good sustainable business practices. Using ESG factors they enhance their returns, better manage risks, increase enterprise value and yes, at the same time make the world a better place to live.

While there’s no magic formula to avoid catastrophes, bad management or negligence, etc, we believe incorporating ESG analysis into the investment decision can help mitigate substantial risk and improve long term returns.


Our vision is to promote sustainable investment strategies using ESG factors. Without limiting your investment choices, ESGA guides you into the world of responsible investment (RI). ESG factors vary from company to company and we have the resources and unique experience to identify material ESG factors that help you identify superior business models or hidden opportunities that ultimately can create better long term returns for investors and a better future for our children.
