ESG investors focus on long-term capital allocation and seek a deeper understanding of the companies and sectors in which they invest. ESG-related dialogue, which can focus on a range of issues from climate change to executive remunerations, creates a virtuous circle in which investors influence companies positively, leading to more sustainable businesses, which in turn attracts a higher presence of these long-term investors.

Leaders Arena tracks the investment activity of more than 9,000 institutional investors and 1,500 ESG-themed funds worldwide to determine ESG equity investments' core component. We monitor the effective ESG integration into their equity-investment decision process, proxy voting activity, active engagement with companies and their own public research and disclosures. This enables us to quantify the core ESG equity market, which provides a more realistic view of this market and is a vital tool during the planning stages of a company’s ESG communication plan with the market.

Based on this methodology and our +70 years of combined ESG expertise, the data and insights from Leaders Arena support Investor Relations & Sustainability professionals to monitor the presence of ESG Investors in their shareholder base, target new investor opportunities, organise roadshows, and conduct extensive country and sector ESG ownership benchmarking exercises.
