FinanceMap is an online, publicly available platform by global climate-risk think tank InfluenceMap which examines the asset management sector through a climate lens. We analyze asset managers' climate performance on portfolios, investor-engagement processes, and shareholder resolutions using industry-recognized benchmarking standards.
FinanceMap applies the market-leading Paris Agreement Capital Transition Assessment (PACTA) methodology, developed by 2 Degrees Investing Initiative, to a universe of over 70,000 funds managed by over 1,000 asset management groups globally, to assess the alignment of portfolios with the Paris Agreement. Registered users can navigate this database from the 'Home' tab, by searching listed funds by name, or by asset manager.
In-depth analysis of the corporate stewardship programs and climate-related proxy voting behavior of the world's 30 largest asset managers can also be accessed through the asset manager profile pages. FinanceMap's methodology to measure the corporate stewardship programs on climate was developed in consultation with several of the world's leading asset managers is benchmarked against the UK Financial Reporting Council's 2020 Stewardship Code.
FinanceMap and its reports inform asset owners and other key stakeholders on how the asset management sector is performing on climate, while providing benchmarking tools for the sector itself.
