ESG Top Movers

Week ending February 5th, 2023

More tech layoffs, a $1.5 million fine, a major product recall and a lost radioactive capsule - among the week's most controversial corporate developments.

It's often difficult to follow all the news to build a complete picture about a company, particularly when events are less reported. Yet published research has identified how selecting stocks and bonds with low controversy profile captures more alpha and lowers risk.

Leveraging local and global newswire coverage, the RavenPack controversy framework allows investors to identify companies involved in controversial events. Each week we publish a selection of controversy identified on a different universe.
