Why Equity Report?
Equity Report was born out of a desire to increase transparency and accountability in the financial markets.
By exploring challenges and opportunities at the intersection between M&A, antitrust, and ESG, our news service responds to subscribers’ need to track market developments in order to make better-informed decisions for themselves and/or on behalf of their clients and keep up to speed with the latest trends and policies in a fast-changing regulatory environment.
The word equity is a fascinating one, as it carries multiple meanings.
In M&A, equity is defined as the value of the shares issued by a company, as well as the stocks and shares that carry no interest.
However, when people talk about equity, they often refer to the quality of being fair and impartial. That is our primary goal: to report on market developments in a fair, accurate, and unbiased manner from a global perspective.
In a world increasingly concerned with environmental, social and governance issues, equity has also a broader meaning. In fact, equity, alongside inclusion and diversity, is one of the key pillars of any internal corporate policy aimed to provide a level playing field for all employees.
But how do you assess a target’s ESG standards in a M&A transaction? This is the thorny question Equity Report is trying to answer. While it is now clear that due diligence can no longer be confined to financial assessment, investors are still confused as to how to evaluate the ethical status of a company.
By subscribing to our news service, companies can reduce their regulatory and investment risks, including by acquiring the tools to assess the ethical status of a potential M&A target.
