IQ-EQ aids clients in identifying and mitigating ESG-related risks

Date: 20 Jan 2021


Amid growing investor appetite for sustainable investments, IQ-EQ has launched a new offering IQ-EQ Compass, which will support its clients in achieving their ESG investing goals while mitigating risks.

IQ-EQ Compass helps mitigate these risks by incorporating client insights, sector expertise and a powerful technology platform to give organisations the correct ESG data and analysis. This not only ensures regulatory compliance but uncovers actionable intelligence, enabling clients to make the right decisions at the right time through all stages of the investment cycle.

Commenting on the launch to Citywealth, Serge Krancenblum, Executive Chairman at IQ-EQ and lead sponsor for the service said:

“The big differentiator with our service offering is that we know private assets and we know private investors very well, so our service is designed especially for UHNWs and family offices investing into private assets such as real estate, private equity and venture capital”.

IQ-EQ Compass has four components:

  • a health check analysis by specialists to see if there are any gaps in ESG policies
  • reputational reports
  • assistance with re-writing policies and frameworks to be compliant with market practices
  • collection of KPIs and metrics to benchmark on the IQ-EQ Compass dasboard.

IQ-EQ’s technology platform also supports multiple ESG reporting frameworks – including the UN Principles of Responsible Investing (PRI) and the World Economic Forum’s ESG metrics – allowing asset managers and investors to compare their performance against globally renowned benchmarks.

Serge added: “Multiple and ever-changing regulatory frameworks present real challenges to establishing and maintaining transparency and compliance. IQ-EQ Compass helps our clients navigate that challenging landscape using a full suite of services, including our ESG Health Check, ESG Reputational Assessment, plus policy drafting and benchmarking, all supported by a powerful technology dashboard. By applying the actionable data and analysis provided by our integrated services, our clients can implement an ESG strategy that does more than mitigate risk; it creates value throughout the investment lifecycle and builds reputational resilience.”
