Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Bank of Ireland.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 28.93
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Bank of Ireland's overall score of 28.93 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 35th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Bank of Ireland 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.).
Environmental score: 8.04/100
Bank of Ireland's environmental score of 8.04 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Bank of Ireland is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 15.36/100
Bank of Ireland's social score of 15.36 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Bank of Ireland is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 17.02/100
Bank of Ireland's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Bank of Ireland is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Bank of Ireland scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Bank of Ireland has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
We're not expecting Bank of Ireland to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Bank of Ireland's shares were split on a 1:30 basis on 6 July 2017. So if you had owned 30 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Bank of Ireland shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Bank of Ireland shares which in turn could have impacted Bank of Ireland's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Bank of Ireland's shares have ranged in value from as little as €1.875 up to €5.472. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (IR average) beta is 1, while Bank of Ireland's is 2.0557. This would suggest that Bank of Ireland's shares are significantly more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent a higher risk.
