ESG Improvers

An alpha-enhancing factor

The following content is intended for Institutional Investors and Financial Professionals only

“We believe that investors will increasingly differentiate between ESG Leaders and Improvers – firms showing the greatest improvement in their ESG footprint – and the latter offers a greater potential for generating uncorrelated alpha over the long term.”
Casey C. Clark, CFA, Global Head of ESG Investments and Portfolio Manager, Rockefeller Asset Management

ESG Improvers are Tomorrow’s Leaders

  • The market overemphasizes ESG Leaders while undervaluing Improvers, those companies showing improvement in their ESG footprint.
  • Improving ESG practices have the potential to increase brand value, enhance customer and employee loyalty, reduce cost, and create long-term competitive advantages.
  • Improvers provide another lens into management quality, a key attribute of future business success.
  • Active engagement accelerates ESG improvement

Introducing:
Rockefeller ESG Improvers Score (REIS)

 

The REIS is a proprietary score that ranks a company’s improvement in performance on material ESG issues relative to peers. Here are a few key highlights from our research covering U.S. Equities from 2010 to 2020:

 

  • A backtested, hypotherical portfolio of top-quintile ESG Improvers outperformed bottom-quintile ESG “Decliners” by 3.8% annualized. The signal is monotonic, in that outperformance grew with each quintile.
  • An optimized hypothetical ESG Improvers portfolio, which seeks to isolate pure ESG improvement while controlling for sector and factor biases, generated 0.5% annualized excess returns with 1.3% tracking error relative to the Bloomberg US 3000 Index.
  • The ESG Improvers factor enhanced returns when integrated with traditional factors over the backtest period. A hypothetical multifactor ESG Improvers + Quality + Low Volatility portfolio outperformed a two-factor Quality and Low Volatiity portfolio by 0.45% annualized.

DEREK JETER

DEREK JETER

Board Member 

 

By the time he stepped away from baseball in 2014 after a historic 20-year career, Derek Jeter had established himself as one of the most respected men to ever have played the game. In recognition of his on-field accomplishments and impact on the game, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in the Class of 2020.

With a reputation as an unmatched leader both on and off the field, Jeter has established a second career leading a variety of successful business ventures and entrepreneurial investments, while still maintaining his ties with baseball. From 2017-2022, he served as part-owner and CEO of MLB’s Miami Marlins, overseeing the day-to-day for both the business and baseball operations for the team. He was the first African-American to serve in this role for any Major League team in the history of the sport and prioritized diversity in his front office and coaching hires.

Jeter is also the founder of The Players’ Tribune, a subsidiary of Minute Media for which he also is a member of the Board. TPT is an innovative multimedia company where world-class athletes share their honest and unique perspectives, bringing fans closer to the games they love. In November 2013, Jeter and Simon & Schuster announced the Jeter Publishing imprint, which has produced a number of New York Times best sellers including the first children’s book released, The Contract, and a full-color photo book called Jeter Unfiltered, which provided fans an in-depth look at his life through never-before-published images taken over the course of his final season.

Jeter continues to be the driving force behind the Turn 2 Foundation, which he established in 1996 to give back to the communities with which he has a close connection, including West Michigan, Tampa and New York City. He satisfies his passion for inspiring young people through initiatives -- like the Jeter’s Leaders program -- that promote academic excellence, leadership development, positive behavior, healthy choices and social change. To date, the Turn 2 Foundation has awarded more than $30 million in grants to create and support signature programs that motivate young people to turn away from drugs and alcohol and “Turn 2” healthy lifestyles.

A five-time World Series champion and member of baseball’s exclusive 3,000-hit club, Jeter earned numerous accolades throughout his career in recognition of both his on-field skill and his commitment to the community, including: World Series MVP (2000); 14 MLB All-Star selections; 5 Gold Glove Awards; 5 Silver Slugger Awards; AL Rookie of the Year (1996); Roberto Clemente Award (2009); and Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Award (2009). In 2017, the Yankees retired his No. 2 jersey and unveiled a plaque in the famed Monument Park in recognition of his historic career with the organization.

Risks of Investing

Investing entails risks, including possible loss of principal. No representation is made that any investment or transaction will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that significant losses will be avoided. No assurances or guarantees are given regarding the performance of any investment.

Past performance may not be repeated and should not be seen as a guide to future performance. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Exchange rates may cause the value of overseas investments and the income arising from them to rise or fall. The levels and bases of and reliefs from taxation may change. Any tax reliefs referred to are those currently available and their value depends on the circumstances of the individual investor. Investors should consult their own tax adviser in order to understand any applicable tax consequences.
