With growing investors’ expectations and new labelling requirements, asset managers can not afford a delayed controversy identification nor rely on an identification process that is not detailed enough based only on absolute controversies numbers.

As an example, the French “ISR” Label requires detailed identification, analysis, and follow-up actions as part of a comprehensive asset manager policy for the prevention and verification of controversies that include: 

  • process for identifying controversies (sources and monitoring process),
  • methodology for analyzing and classifying controversies,
  • escalation process, in particular: initiation of dialogue, strengthening of dialogue,
  • monitoring, management act, type of actions, etc,
  • internal governance put in place to deal with ESG controversies, as well as the tools for monitoring follow-up actions,
  • formalization of decisions relating to past controversies, etc…
