Methodology behind the iScore

The Aggregate Confusion Hypothesis* by the MIT research team suggests that the rating divergence comes from 3 aspects: Scope, Rater, and Weighting differences. We argue that ESG analysts employed by different ESG data providers are subjected to regional and corporate culture influence in rating companies, leaving to the divergence.

For each stock, we compute a divergence factor based on performance based ESG scores of each firm from various providers of different regions to capture the divergence effect. With a proprietary Peer-Based ESG (PBESG) analysis framework, we compute the iScore for each firm by scaling the ESG rating by the divergence factor generated.
