ESG Solutions: Low Water Usage Outcomes
Can portfolios with lower water usage levels deliver performance and risk comparable to the underlying index?
PGIM Quant delivers a range of quantitative investment solutions to solve for ESG investors’ varied challenges. Giving options and a voice to articulate their investment values, we help clients reach their unique investment objectives through customized solutions designed around universe, risk level, and expected return using a holistic approach that harnesses our quantitative expertise.
Our holistic, flexible approach leads to a broader analysis of material issues, identifying risk across multiple dimensions.
ESG factors comprise just one dimension of the broader risk environment. Our holistic approach to ESG investing is therefore an extension of our overall risk analysis that can identify risks across many dimensions. Our approach has the flexibility and depth to allow us to broaden our analysis of material issues to encompass a wider set of sustainability concerns.
Beyond portfolio investment activities, we firmly believe in the importance of effective stewardship and engagement as a mechanism to proactively address material risks or egregious sustainability behaviors of a company. And as quantitative investors managing highly diversified portfolios across large global universes, we view “market-level” engagement with policymakers and regulators as well as collaboration with industry organizations to promote improved disclosure of information that could enhance outcomes for client portfolios as critical components of our ESG investment process.
As a firm, PGIM Quant has made several public commitments related to ESG and responsible investing. These include:
