Barclays adds ESG to research

Barclays is to begin including ESG indicators in its equity research.

Barclays Research is to launch ESG Fundamental Research using proprietary and third-party data to analyse companies and assess their ESG performance. Barclays says the research will generate a five-point scale for ESG for each company and identify divergences in views between Barclays analysts and that of leading ESG indicator providers.
