Case study

Assessing human rights risks in an investor’s portfolio

Sancroft assessed salient human rights risks in Scottish Widows‘ portfolio before prioritising high risk areas and recommending engagement strategies to strengthen its overall approach to human rights risks.

‘We employed Sancroft to undertake a deeper review of our portfolio’s human rights risks to develop a broader understanding and test our own analysis. Sancroft have provided in-depth insights on human rights, demonstrating their expertise on a topic which is difficult to establish data for and finding solutions to overcome the gaps in data. Their service has been fantastic, and we are really pleased with their findings and recommendations’.
