Top 3 Benefits of Using Engagement Tracker

Investors are under increasing pressure to demonstrate their stewardship and focus on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) engagements. Studies have shown that companies with high ESG ratings have lower volatility and higher returns, making it an important consideration for investors. However, traditional methods for engagement management are becoming increasingly outdated and ineffective. Spreadsheets and manual processes are prone to errors and lack advanced analytics capabilities, making it difficult to manage a portfolio effectively.

Asset managers are turning to technology to help manage their investment portfolios effectively. Portfolio management software, risk management software, analytics and modelling tools, ESG research tools, and client portals are all tools that asset managers use to manage their portfolios. However, these tools do not focus specifically on stewardship and engagement activity, which is crucial for responsible investment.

The Maanch Engagement Tracker is a holistic tool that streamlines processes and has an open API for internal and third-party integrations. It allows easy and effective capture, analysis, and reporting of every engagement with portfolio companies in real-time, aligned with the latest ESG taxonomies. This increased efficiency, better risk management, and improved communication can revolutionize the way asset managers manage their portfolio engagements.

In conclusion, the Engagement Tracker is an essential tool for any investment portfolio. It offers a wealth of benefits that can help asset managers make informed investment decisions, identify opportunities for diversification, monitor ESG exposures and mitigate risks, and comply with regulations. Adopting this technology can be the key to unlocking the potential of responsible investment and achieving better financial performance for investors.
