During 2012, GES has significantly increased its screening universe to approximately 16,000 of the largest listed companies in the world. In addition, GES is in the process of including another 2,500 companies, which equals a nearly 70 per cent increase since 2011.
The expansion of GES’ screening universe from 11,000 companies in 2011 to planned 18,500 companies, is directly linked to investor demand, explains Martin Pitura, Managing Director, GES Poland, and CFO, GES International:
“Due to the economic turmoil investors are looking for other investment possibilities. Investors are also applying ESG aspects on more asset classes, not only equities. By expanding the universe of equities, corporate bonds and private equities, clients can be confident that GES will be able to serve them even better and provide an extended regional coverage, especially in emerging markets.”
