Environmental, social and governance

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are increasingly acknowledged as key non-financial factors that can influence the performance of investment portfolios.

At Macquarie Securities, we have been publishing on ESG issues for some time. Our integrated approach, giving top-down analysis followed by bottom-up stock valuations, has gained a significant following among institutional investors in both Australia and Asia. Our focus on the significance of ESG issues, and our engagement with a broad range of ESG-interested parties, has led us to perform well in emerging peer ESG rankings.

Our research includes:

  • forecasts for the Australian renewable energy market
  • commentary on changes to corporate governance guidelines on diversity
  • analysis of corporate human capital management, corporate governance and risk management
  • analysis of issues surrounding water scarcity and infrastructure.

Our ESG publications include:

ESG EXPLORATION A quarterly analysis of a key ESG issue and its impact across sectors and stocks
ESG Dynamics A monthly review of the key developments in the ESG arena, from policy changes to corporate announcements

We also publish sector-specific and policy-specific pieces, giving in-depth analysis of key ESG issues for specific stocks – such as modeling of the renewable energy market, the impact of climate change on insurance, or changes in corporate governance diversity guidelines.
