Evidence of calls - A Validation of our Methodology
Solaron's research methodology's anchor point is in gleaning important information about a firm's sustainability risk and performance from its various stakeholders. This important step in the research process, now no longer a feature in products by traditional research firms, addresses the futility in relying on company disclosure as well as brings to the forefront hidden information about a firm not accessible in publishable formats such as news reports and company reports.
As a result, we have accurately been able to forecast certain ESG events related to firms before the marketplace has become aware of it. Our Best in Context Infosys report written in late 2010 highlighted employee dissension and leadership trust issues. These very issues have emerged as a public debate in mid 2011.

Country ESG Snapshots - Evaluating Predominant Climate Change Risks in Portfolios
We, at Solaron, have understood that investors are likely to invest in certain emerging markets as compared to others. In such a scenario, portfolios are skewed heavily towards the climate change and sustainability risks present in those regions. In order to better equip portfolio managers and investors in their understanding of emerging market ESG risks, Solaron has developed its Country ESG Snapshot product offering. This evaluative risk research product is a first in the ESG industry and fills a gap not addressed by mainstream geopolitical risk research firms and traditional ESG research companies. It serves a twofold purpose of not only identifying climate change and sustainability impact areas present in those regions but also highlighting case studies of ESG management of such risks by companies operating in those countries.
For Active Engagement Investors:
For investors looking to engage in companies that they have invested in; these reports provide an evaluative insight of ESG risks that companies have to effectively manage in emerging markets if they aim to augment shareholder value and be sustainable firms.
For Portfolio Managers:
Country ESG Snapshots also serve as an important tool for portfolio managers to understand the kind of ESG risks their portfolios are skewed towards. By underlining the kind of ESG risks present in certain emerging markets, portfolio managers are empowered with another decision analysis tool that enables them to identify which emerging market they would like to invest in.
