Point Focal ESG impact mapping & screening automatically connects uploaded portfolios with company product revenue mapped to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Impact is measured by positive and negative revenue alignment to each of the UNs 17 SDGs. Impact analytics are automatically overlaid onto indexes, portfolios, sectors, and stocks.
UN SDGs are classified into thematic categories outlined below. Portfolio managers and research analysts map a rigorous, objective methodology to their investment themes by ranking, weighting, or excluding SDGs. This flexibility enables asset managers to analyze their holdings with default benchmark scores and custom scores mapped to their investment objectives.
