Principles-Based Screening

Embedding principles into investment choices by screening out companies involved in certain industries, products or activities is challenging to implement thoughtfully. Unrefined approaches are overly restrictive, introducing unnecessary risk. OWL’s data-driven Principles-based Screening identifies companies that are meaningfully involved in the products/activities an investor wants to avoid. 

Leveraging artificial intelligence technology, OWL ESG’s Principles-based Screening tool determines when a company’s actions materially conflicts with investors’ ethical priorities.
