Novus X ESG & Impact Investing Forum
Measuring the Impact of ESG Investing

How "clean" are the portfolios of the biggest hedge funds in the industry when it comes to environmental, social, and governance factors? Does it pay to go long on clean stocks, or short dirty stocks?

By combining regulatory filings data with MSCI ESG tags, Novus was able to identify which hedge funds are invested in the cleanest/dirtiest names, and also look at aggregate trends among hedge fund ownership across ratings buckets (AAA to C, as assigned by MSCI), and the impact of those decisions on performance.

Institutional investors—both allocators and managers—can run similar analyses for their own portfolios.

You may be wondering:

  • How do I measure my exposure to Environmental, Social, and Governance factors across all of my investments?
  • How have these exposures evolved over time?
  • If I had chosen securities above certain ESG thresholds, would returns be higher or would draw-downs be lower?

Andrea Gentilini, CEO, and Alex Chadwick, Vice President of Sales Engineering at Novus address these questions and more in this 18-minute spotlight video, recorded at the 2021 ESG & Impacting Forum.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
