The Analyst Desk utilizes SmartView® 360 to distill large sets of complex financial and extra‐financial environmental, social and governance (ESG) data to produce comprehensive, relevant and actionable information for investors, executive decision makers and our advisory team. We actively screen and filter our proprietary database of global, public companies to evaluate a firm’s Sustainable Performance Value (SPV) – a rating of a company’s total financial, environmental, social and governance performance. The SmartView® 360 methodology for SPV evaluates firms across 200 metrics that are proven to have a strong correlation with outperformance and improved shareholder value, and force-ranks firms based on their relative performance. This is the basis for the prestigious NASDAQ CRD Global Sustainability Index.
