Artorius, Sugi team to bolster awareness around investment climate impact

A partnership between wealth manager Artorius and sustainable FinTech Sugi will look to provide personalised information about the climate impact of investments.

According to Artorius, the partnership will see it offer their clients bespoke access to Sugi’s environmental metrics, providing the personalised information around the climate impact of investments and help investors take action to build a greener portfolio.

Launched earlier this year, Sugi shows retail investors the carbon impact of their investments and the global warming temperature alignment of their portfolios, as well as industry benchmarks and similar investments for comparison. Investors are also able to offset some or all of their portfolio carbon impact through verified carbon credits.

Artorius noted that Sugi currently displays impact data for 95% of the global listed equities market and offers comprehensive coverage of ETFs, investment trusts and mutual funds. Instead of sourcing information via asset managers, Sugi does its own analysis from company-level data – meaning its metrics are objective and independent.

Sugi CEO and founder Josh Gregory said, “We’re at a crucial time for climate action, and demand for ESG products is at an all-time high. In this context, it’s vital that the investment industry is transparent with their clients about the environmental impact of their investments and curated portfolios in a way that is clear and understandable and meets investor needs. That’s why we’re delighted to partner with Artorius, bringing our personalised, independent metrics to their clients.”

Artorius CEO Paddy Lewis added, “Artorius is incredibly proud to be the first wealth manager to partner with Sugi, enhancing our ESG offering with Sugi’s first-class environmental metrics and the ability for our clients to reduce their carbon footprint by offsetting via verified carbon credits. Our partnership with Sugi, as one of the UK’s leading green FinTechs, is a great reflection of the fresh and entrepreneurial approach that Artorius brings to wealth management.”
