About financial services companies 

Financial companies, banks, private equity firms, and venture capital organizations all conduct operations in the financial services sector.

Private equity organizations directly invest in companies that are not publicly traded, often with the goal of earning returns that are better than what can be achieved in public equity markets such as the stock exchange.

Venture capital firms provide funding to young startup businesses exhibiting long-term growth potential.  

Many financial services companies are invested in more than one organization, and thus have a portfolio of investments. 

The challenge

ESG and financial companies are becoming increasingly interlinked due to increasing government legislation and industry regulation in terms of ESG requirements.

Banks, investors, holding companies, private equity firms, and venture capital organizations wanting to engage in responsible investing are realizing the benefits of having access to information on a company’s performance in terms of non-financial topics such as: 

  • Governance 
  • Social issues  
  • Environmentally sustainable practices 

Investors are seeing the link between access to ESG disclosures to give context to a company’s performance, and its potential future success trajectory.  

In addition, risks are easily identifiable through the ESG lens which provides a broader view than a pure focus on financial disclosures, in-turn allowing for more informed decision-making. 

Getting an informed picture of each company’s ESG performance within an investment portfolio can be a challenge however, particularly when there is no mandate for private companies to track and report on their ESG performance.

Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI or PRI)

What is UNPRI?

UNPRI is a United Nations-supported international network of investors working to promote the incorporation of ESG principles into responsible investment decision-making.

Its six aspirational principles offer a framework of possible actions in incorporating ESG aspects into investment and ownership decisions.

What are the six UNPRI principles?

Principle 1: We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes. 

Principle 2: We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices. 

Principle 3: We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest. 

Principle 4: We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry. 

Principle 5: We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles. 

Principle 6: We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.

Why should I be aware of the (UN)PRI initiative?

The (UN)PRI initiative is global, backed by the United Nations, and indicative of the growing influence of environmental, social and corporate governance within the financial industry.  

Thousands of signatories from leading financial companies around the world have signed up to adhere to the Principles, demonstrating that there is significant appetite for ethical and responsible investing.

It also shows how sustainability in investment decision-making and ownership practices is gathering traction within the financial industry.

How does UNPRI relate to IsoMetrix?

IsoMetrix enables financial and investment companies to embrace the UNPRI initiative via our ESG software.

By enabling the tracking, management, and reporting of ESG data, our software facilitates the incorporation of ESG principles into responsible investment decision-making.
