About CK Capital
CK Capital is the investment research and financial products arm of Corporate Knights, Inc. Founded in 2011, CK Capital supplies the market with objective, data-driven “clean capitalism” ratings for a universe of approximately 2,000 companies, covering 15 global equity indices.
CK Capital’s ratings platform measures company performance on a focused suite of key performance indicators (KPIs), ranging from greenhouse gas productivity to employee turnover and CEO-Average Worker Pay, as well as some market-specific metrics such as defined benefit pension fund status.
CK Capital’s research model is predicated on the belief that unique signals about a company’s ability to create value can be captured by measuring corporate performance on these KPIs in a quantitatively rigorous manner.
CK Capital’s methodology for evaluating companies’ sustainability or “clean capitalism” performance was cited as a leading global practice (by SustainAbility in their Rate the Raters research program).
