Leading investors are increasingly going beyond analysing financially material risks in their portfolios, to assess their most salient human rights risks – those that present the most severe potential impact to people. 

We leverage our experience in assessing human rights risks for corporates and our regional expertise to help investors screen portfolios for their highest risk assets. We also help investors get ahead of human rights issues pre-transaction including in the supply chain, spotlighting high risk sectors and regions and providing tailored analysis on critical issues. We bring a human rights lens to environmental & social due diligence, analysing risks based on gold standard frameworks such as the IFC Performance Standards as well as the UN Guiding Principles on Business & Human Rights (UNGPs).
