What we do

Arguably the biggest evolution of traditional business models in the last 50 years, sustainability is a pressing issue for the investment management industry.

We have the skills and experience to help firms shape the strategic future of their business, with sustainability in mind. ESG implementation can be done with authenticity and without compromising credibility, incorporated within existing mechanisms. 

Our approach

We use a tried and tested approach to help you articulate and implement your ESG positioning.

01

Discover

We conduct extensive research to understand your existing approach and positioning. As external consultants, we are not impacted by potential biases and can discover differentiation more clearly. 

02

Define

We shape the messaging framework and overarching narrative that will be central to your positioning. Through a period of refinement with client working groups and wider stakeholders in the business we validate, authenticate and evidence the findings of this phase.

03

Deliver

Using the narrative and framework, we help you integrate the messaging into your branding and marketing activities, as well as internal communication. 

Credible, authentic, different

Our independent approach and understanding of industry dynamics and trends can help you think about sustainability in an authentic and original way that suits your brand and values.

We work with you to:

  • develop sustainability positioning
  • create integrated campaigns
  • carry out market research & analysis and competitor positioning
  • plan and produce engaging content for different audiences
  • plan and execute effective internal and external comms
  • align sustainability goals and positioning with strategic direction
