Granahan has decided to implement Esgaia’s independent, purpose-built software to support its investment stewardship practices.
Esgaia, a Swedish software company, focuses on helping institutional investors optimize their engagement process by providing a dedicated engagement management platform.
Granahan will use the solution to simplify recording, monitoring, and coordination of engagement activities across the organization, while advancing stakeholder reporting using automated statistics on both entity and product level.
Jane White, CEO of Granahan Investment Management, commented: “The lack of standards surrounding ESG regulation makes process implementation difficult. The Esgaia platform helps us apply the engagement best practices we’ve defined at GIM, while also giving us the flexibility to refine and evolve in this continuously changing regulatory environment. We are thrilled to partner with a provider that is helping investors report on engagement practices more easily.”
Anton Ljung, CEO of Esgaia, said: “Granahan is one of our first US-based clients, which says a lot about their intent and drive towards engagement best practice. Purposeful engagement is about setting expectations and helping entities manage important issues, using accountability and consequence as levers. By providing use case centric functionality and continuous improvements, Esgaia’s software supports investors in this endeavor. We look forward to advancing investor practices together with Granahan.”
