UK financial adviser support group Tenet has launched research platform ESG Compass.
It will enable advisers to cut through the complexity of ESG propositions and make recommendations to their clients based on researched information.
The portal gives advisers access to a suite of ESG funds, managed portfolio services, and mortgage research, all subject to due diligence, objective analysis, and regular re-evaluation.
Furthermore, advisers can conduct focused ESG searches according to criteria such as ESG style, product type, risk level, and cost.
ESG Compass will be available to both Tenet Compliance Service’s directly authorised advisers and the wider market, with Tenet Network Services members also getting access to research as part of their existing panel research. Tenet is giving free lifetime access to anyone who signs up to ESG Compass before the end of this year.
Mark Scanlon, chief executive at Tenet, said: “Rightly, ESG has become an essential consideration for investors seeking a positive impact and healthy returns.
“However, finding and researching ESG propositions in a saturated market remains complex and time-consuming for advisers. Our new digital platform gives advisers confidence in meeting their clients’ ESG requirements by enabling them to research a range of ESG propositions.”
