In a recent article for Corporate Adviser, SECOR’s Erik Davey, comments on the availability of TCFD data.

Erik Davey, Director, UK & Europe at SECOR Asset Management says that data availability varies widely across asset classes making it difficult to accurately report at a total portfolio level.

“Despite not having portfolio level metrics, information that we do have provides valuable insight into public asset classes through benchmark and peer comparison. Because public markets are much more liquid, the information that we can gather is more decision-useful in terms of what portfolio changes can be made to reduce emissions if we were to receive the equivalent information for our private market investments.

For private market managers, our data collection process relies more heavily on our interactions with managers and their own individual assessment of their assets from an ESG perspective, such as scorecards, company questionnaires and environmental reporting.”
