DescriptionArabesque S-Ray® is our proprietary tool for portfolio construction, risk management and reporting It allows investors to measure the sustainability of approximately 7,000 companies worldwide. The tool applies a quantitative and algorithmic approach to ESG data, empowering all stakeholders to make better decisions for a more sustainable future. It is the first tool of its kind to rate companies on the normative principles of the United Nations Global Compact (GC Score). Additionally, S-Ray provides an industry-specific assessment of companies’ performance on financially material sustainability criteria (ESG Score). Both scores are combined with a preferences filter that assesses a company’s business involvements.ApproachWe believe that technology-driven approaches such as S-Ray can change the market. Its unbiased algorithms harness the power of machine learning, processing big data to produce a daily snapshot of a company’s sustainability. By offering investors a modular way of aggregating relevant sustainability big data, it can help to improve decision making on responsible investment in the long term, a fourth dimension of security analysis. A large-scale shift of capital can in turn encourage more corporates to integrate ESG into their strategies, which has the potential to lead to better long-term performance and unlock benefits for investors and for the global community.
