Fidelity launch ESG ratings

Fidelity International has launched a range of proprietary sustainability ratings.

Covering over 3000 issuers of equities and fixed income, the ratings are divided into 99 subsectors each with industry-specific criteria against which the issuer is assessed relative to its peers, using an A to E rating. The ratings utilize the assessments of around 180 equities and fixed income analysts from 16,000 company meetings a year. The ratings will be updated annually or following a change of policy or an exceptional event at the company.
