SinCo - sustainable investment consulting - offers ESG expertise to investment practitioners. We understand investment, and the business of investment. SinCo has a long-standing commitment to sustainable investment and good governance in growing economies.
HELPING INVESTORS REPORT ESG
Within SinCo's five service themes [architecture, indexes, frameworks, education, and thematic research], we have nine activities we typically work on for our clients globally. We support our investor clients with regular compliance and audit functions based on industry standards and guidelines such as:
- Equator Principles (EP3)
- Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)
- Code for Responsible Investment in South Africa (CRISA)
SinCo reports present focused, salient content for the standards body, signatory initiative, compliance function, or a specific audience. Reports convince of the result of an experiment, investigation, or inquiry - whether public or private, for audiences of institutional or retail investors, governments, stock exchanges, regulators and universities. SinCo applies an original approach to graphics, images, and ESG-specialized vocabulary in order to persuade the specific audience to act.

“Graham is as passionate about sustainability as he is about emerging markets and the African continent in particular. He is a very hard worker who sets about his task with enthusiasm and creativity.Those qualities were instrumental in ensuring a sizeable contingent of signatories to the Initiative in South Africa within a relatively short space of time. His skills and drive will be sorely missed."
CEO, PRI signatory organization.
