ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Brookfield Asset Management is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Brookfield Asset Management's environmental score

Environmental score: 1.89/100

Brookfield Asset Management's environmental score of 1.89 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Brookfield Asset Management is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Brookfield Asset Management share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 22.11% of net profits

Recently Brookfield Asset Management has paid out, on average, around 22.11% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Brookfield Asset Management shareholders could enjoy a 0.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Brookfield Asset Management's case, that would currently equate to about $0.509 per share.

While Brookfield Asset Management's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Brookfield Asset Management is investing more in its future growth.

Have Brookfield Asset Management's shares ever split?

Brookfield Asset Management's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 2 April 2020. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Brookfield Asset Management shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Brookfield Asset Management shares which in turn could have impacted Brookfield Asset Management's share price.

Brookfield Asset Management share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Brookfield Asset Management's shares have ranged in value from as little as $37.3622 up to $62.0595. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

BAM.US volatility(beta: 1.4)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Brookfield Asset Management's is 1.395. This would suggest that Brookfield Asset Management's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
