Simplify and

Our approach

Our approach solves key ESG questions for different players in the investor space.

For Investors

  • Can I do more to consider ESG in my investment decisions?
  • Are my fund managers managing ESG well?
  • Am I happy with the ESG profile of the underlying assets?

We help investors assess their own approach to ESG integration, as well as their fund managers helping to identify opportunities to further embed ESG into investment decisions. We also understand the need for increased transparency into underlying portfolios, which is why we also help fund managers assess and report on ESG themes relevant to each asset within their portfolio. Investors can view consolidated information on their fund managers and funds in single dashboard.

ESG Indicators

For Managers

  • How can we increase the value of our portfolio?
  • Do investors understand our approach to ESG?
  • What is the ESG profile of each asset before I invest?

We understand that most fund managers view ESG as an opportunity for growth, but increasing investor demand and regulatory requirements can make it difficult to know where to start. We help managers assess how well they have integrated ESG into funding decisions and comply with regulations such as SFDR. ESG Advantage allows managers to screen potential investments for ESG considerations, and also conduct an in-depth review of assets and companies within their portfolios, focusing on the most material themes.

For Companies

  • Does ESG present value creation opportunities?
  • Are there ESG risks that we need to manage?
  • How can I create a business fit for the future?

We know that every asset is different and a ‘one size fits all’ approach to ESG assessment can be time consuming and challenging for management to narrow down on the most important issues. Holtara have been helping companies and Asset operators across different industries navigate ESG developments for 15 years. We share this insight with clients in an industry outlook, and help them identify those themes which are most relevant to them – with specific frameworks for companies, real-estate and infrastructure assets. Clients are able to compare their performance to benchmarks, set ESG targets and track improvement initiatives. As needed our Advisors can help management teams put an action plan together to drive progress.

Our views on ESG & Sustainability

ESG & sustainability

Our current economic system has brought unprecedented levels of welfare and prosperity. Yet it is clear to all of us that the ways we produce, consume and finance will have to change.

At Holtara, we believe that investors and managers play an important role in this transition. First, to better understand the impacts of their investments on climate change, ecosystems and society. Second, to challenge their investments to reduce these impacts, but also to capture the opportunities that the transition provides. We support investors and managers in this role and we enable them to act upon regulatory and stakeholder requirements.
