Evaluating how effectively a company serves its stakeholders in the broadest sense is integral to our investment process. Building this proprietary sustainability ratings tool was a natural next step that matches our bottom-up fundamental research process and draws on our deep corporate access.
Marty Dropkin, Global Head of Research, Fixed Income, Fidelity International
The strength of our proprietary ratings lies in the integration of our equity and fixed income research at the issuer level with the ongoing engagement undertaken by our ESG team, portfolio managers and analysts. This gives us the opportunity to provide our clients with a truly forward-looking view of the multiple factors impacting a company’s ESG performance and future trajectory.
Ned Salter, Head of Equity, Fidelity International
