Use of ESG Rating Agencies Will Increase Dramatically

Agencies

Nearly one in three (30%) pension funds and institutional investors say their use of ESG rating agencies will increase dramatically over the next three years, and a further 38% believe it will increase slightly. This is according to new research from quant technologies provider SigTech, who surveyed institutional investors across North America, Europe and Asia that collectively have around $935 billion of assets under management (please see the attached press release).

However, the findings reveal that 66% of professional investors interviewed said they struggle with ESG rating agencies because they can provide wildly divergent ESG scores at a company level.

Over the next three years, 14% of institutional investors surveyed by SigTech said they expect investor activism to increase dramatically, and a further 52% anticipate a slight rise.
