Research and academic studies show good governance is an important consideration to achieving or exceeding benchmarks when constructing portfolios, especially ESG portfolios. Countries with good governance tend to have superior environmental and social performance. Furthermore, recent research shows companies with good “G” also tend to have good “E” and “S” performance. Simply put, good governance can drive good environmental, social, and investment performance.

We research it differently than other organizations because we research the actual behavior of the entity, allowing us to truly understand their level of adherence to good governance practices. Magni is the “G” in ESG investing.
