Potential Parametric solution
Parametric has been offering client-driven, index-based portfolios that incorporate ESG criteria for more than 15 years. Our robust and continually evolving menu of ESG screens and licensed indexes gives investors a wide range of portfolio design choices. In many cases, however, investors are well served by a standardized portfolio with minimal modifications. With this in mind, we’ve designed a series of risk-controlled, index-like exposures that can be used as a core equity portfolio allocation while aligning with common responsible investing themes.
