This quantitative strategy invests in a universe of companies that are sector leaders in terms of ESG criteria. The investment universe is created with a negative and positive screening approach, which results, for example, in the exclusion of the largest carbon emitters. The portfolio construction process is based on a systematic approach and a multifactor model that exploits varied sources of alpha that have shown persistence and whose prospects are rationalizable.
