IW Financial draws on its own proprietary ESG research and leading independent third party services to provide impartial and comprehensive global coverage of environmental, social, and governance issues.
Unburdened by legacy approaches to research methodologies, data acquisition, and data processing, IW Financial’s in-house research has built on the best of what worked in the past with more granular and impartial approaches to conducting and presenting research. Our proprietary ESG research covers over 5000 companies globally and more than 3000 U.S. publicly traded companies across more than 1000 discrete data elements, allowing the asset manager, fiduciary, or advisor to make more informed investment decisions.
IW Financial's ESG research is packaged into different data sets and made available through the IWF Workstation platform, via data deliveries, or in combination with various services.
IW Financial's in-house research is supplemented through our partnership with leading research firms worldwide. Among the firms providing research to IW Financial are EIRIS, which covers more than 60 different social, environmental and ethical areas on international companies; and Glass Lewis & Co., a leading investment research, global proxy advisory and voting services firm that identifies business, legal, governance and financial risk at more than 23,000 companies worldwide.
