Our Focus

We commit to put sustainability at the center of our business. Our focus on Environment, Education and Enterprise drives our ESG initiatives and actions in line with the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals.


Education (UNSDG #4)

We believe financial literacy is for everyone. We help youths, women, the elderly and the underserved in society learn how to be smart and safe in managing their money and when making investment decisions. 

Enterprise (UNSDG #8)

We aim to support individuals to reach their full potential and to help them achieve their life goals. Our responsibility lies in helping create a more equitable world by offering full and productive employment and decent work opportunities for all. 

Environment (UNSDG #13)

We are conscious of the need to reduce the environmental footprint of business. We aim to support our clients make investment decisions that promote more green practices. Our research reports integrate ESG data and analysis, enabling customers to make prudent investment  decisions for a better tomorrow.
