ABOUT GMI RATINGS
GMI Ratings is a leading provider of corporate governance, ESG (environmental, social and governance) and forensic accounting research and rating services to institutional investors worldwide. Created through the merger of three independent firms in 2010, GMI helps asset owners and asset managers incorporate these factors into the investment decision-making process, with a particular emphasis on risk management.
Demand for corporate governance and ESG research has been rapidly growing in recent years due to globalization, heightened market volatility and increasing numbers and increasingly frequent “black swan” events, which are forcing capital markets to rethink traditional models and find new ways of assessing portfolio risk. Demand is also being driven by the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), which provides a voluntary framework for investors to incorporate ESG issues into their investment decision-making process. In addition to equity portfolios, the PRI is now being adopted by fixed income managers and insurers. With our focus on materiality, our proprietary ESG ratings, ESG KeyMetrics® and our flagship GMI Analyst research platform, GMI is one of a very select group of companies positioned to capitalize on this growing opportunity.
What makes GMI stand out even more, and which opens the door to markets beyond the ESG space, are our two other proprietary rating models:
Accounting and Governance Risk (AGR®) – short term risk indicator based on forensic accounting and key governance factors
Forensic Alpha Model (FAM™) – alpha model for quantitative investors and hedge funds built on accounting and governance factors
