Project Delphi is an investor initiative working quietly for the past 3 years to develop an industry ESG reference point.
For Analysts and Researchers, this is intended to help scope material issues by industry along with the analysis and research needed to inform asset managers’ new valuation approaches and investment models. For Asset Managers, this will promote greater recognition of specific critical ESG issues and the information and data they need to revise valuation approaches and develop new investment models. For Asset Owners and their advisers then comes increased understanding of the value implications of ESG investing and the priorities they should be setting with asset managers.
The Delphi Framework also sits at the nexus of the investor/corporate dialogue. It will signpost the most material ESG factors, industry metrics and integration narrative as a basis for better corporate engagement, reporting and, ultimately, the internal investment case. The Framework is in Beta draft and currently being tested with industry insiders. It will shortly go out to wider review with key stakeholder groups and SFM is delighted to support that process.
As such, we are delighted to be hosting a webinar on Monday February 9 at 11.00 ET (17:00 CET/ 16:00 GMT) with the Project Delphi team in attendance including:
