SDG Applied Research Unit
The SDG Applied Research Unit is a critical priority for 17AM to build and expand the Global Goals knowledge base and understanding. Aided by our global partnerships, we offer the framing, strategy, research, data, and measurement to help advisors at financial intermediaries engage in SDG-based strategy with their clients and construct related portfolios. Our research also provides institutions with ongoing social and financial insight and performance around each Global Goal. This combined knowledge and research, as well as our ability to adapt to the newest technologies in the field, allows us to formulate a framework that we utilize across our business. We believe this is an important need for the industry as a whole.
