KYOTO, Japan, Mar 24, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - The Value Research Center (VRC) has launched an integrated Value Model with ESG and Sustainability measures in a new white paper issued today. With the shift from short term, profit-focused thinking towards long-term, sustainable, value-focused thinking, businesses globally need to answer a fundamental question: "What value are you providing our collective future?"
A Value Model for Responsible Business: The new Value Research Center (VRC) white paper was officially released today. The VRC initiative is aimed at improving company performance and social impact.
The VRC at Doshisha University was established in November 2021 to create a Value Model that could guide any company to answer this question, so ensuring a more sustainable future. The VRC published its initial white paper, "Valuing Value", in June 2021, integrating 357 impact measurements from 15 of the world's top ESG and sustainability frameworks and developing a 7-stakeholder, 27-theme, 80-goal model to help businesses objectively and transparently measure and manage the value impacts that they have on their key stakeholders.
The VRC's new white paper entitled "A Value Model for Responsible Business", integrates an additional 346 impact measurements from 6 new frameworks into the initial model. These 6 frameworks include the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) Prototype Climate-related disclosures; Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) guidance on metrics, targets and transition plans; Stockholm Resilience Center's Planetary Boundaries; United Nations Development Program (UNDP) SDG Impact Standards for Enterprises; International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards; and Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) climate disclosures.
Professor Philip Sugai, Director of the VRC, says "Our team analyzed hundreds of existing impact measurements and organized these into 27 common themes with 81 goals that any company, regardless of size, industry or location can use to measure, manage and use to consistently increase the value they create for stakeholders. Unlike existing ESG or sustainability reporting models, the VRC Value Model offers companies the ability to track their actual stakeholder impacts, using this data to create forward-looking strategies aimed at further increasing the value they create for and with these stakeholders."
Masato Yamazaki, Professor Emeritus of Economics at Aquinas College, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and VRC operating council member, said "The Value Model that our VRC research team offers is a more advanced approach than any other sustainability model or approach in existence today, since it can automatically help identify the root causes of the problems companies face via well-developed assessment tools."
"What is needed in sustainability efforts today goes beyond simple reporting," says Dr. Kumar Iyer, Mentor for Value Creation and VRC operating council member. "The VRC Value Model is based on objective metrics and quantifiable indicators which can be independently verified. This is uniquely different from any other sustainability reporting approach as it is directly linked to creating social impact.

Bitcoin price, throughout the past week, maintained a significant uptrend after flipping from the lower support. Currently, testing one of the crucial levels from the last trading day, the asset may witness a slight pullback. These levels are also important because the resistance level around $41,900 is also the neckline for the formed double-bottom pattern. …
To the outsider, few things are as mysterious as the stock market. While it has the potential to diversify your income if you are a trader, it also has the potential to wipe out your earnings in seemingly the blink of an eye. That reality isn't lost on adults in America, roughly 61% of whom say the stock market feels intimidating or scary. Most people, we can all agree, will resist investing in something they don't feel comfortable with, yet despite its inherent risks, trading has the possibility of being beneficial in the long term. How, then, can we encourage more people to become retail traders and start their own investment journeys, wherever they may lead? TruTrade.IO, led by its co-founder, Danny Rebello, believes the answer lies in providing retail traders with automation software that incorporates the institutional strategies used by investment bankers and hedge funds.
Why Trading Feels Confusing to So Many People
The stock market fluctuates according to patterns or cycles that can be overturned by sudden events like the coronavirus: one day things seem fine, and the next, the world has dramatically changed, sending markets plunging. It takes a certain amount of knowledge or experience, then, to know how to potentially ride those inevitable developments and decide whether you should trade or sit tight.
Trading also involves concepts and terminology that the pros studied in college before earning additional certifications and entering the world of FOREX, equities, and futures. Yes, it is true that there are a lot of excellent books that explain trading to the outsider and that there is no shortage of seminars, but can they teach everything that a professional learned during their four years in college? Perhaps not. Additionally, it is likely that the information in books and seminars can become outdated as techniques and strategies evolve.
In the end, we can probably assume that 47% of U.S. families are not investing in the stock market for one or more reasons: they do not feel they have enough knowledge to invest, they are apprehensive about its ups and downs, or they think that trading is only for those who have a specialized education.
How TruTrade.IO Is Working to Encourage More People to Invest
TruTrade.IO states that the world of trading should be open to everyone regardless of their socioeconomic or education status. “While trading will always involve an element of risk, we want people to feel confident that when they trade, they do so knowing they are using the strategies available to pro traders.”
To that end, the company created its automation software, which it says utilizes tips previously known only by industry professionals. “We believe that manual trading is no longer the best option for retail traders,” it states. “It involves a lot of time and energy that most people simply do not have. While the retail trader will, of course, invest some time in learning how to use TruTrade.IO, the software can help them to potentially begin their trading adventure on the same footing as a professional.”
One element faced by retail traders and the pros alike is risk. “Again, there is no way to take it completely out of trading,” TruTrade.IO believes. “However, as institutional traders know, there are ways to possibly lower it, which is the goal of DRAMM, our dynamic risk management module.”
TruTrade.IO explains that with DRAMM, the software manages an array of complex money management strategies, allowing retail traders to potentially trade more realistically, which the company claims is an advantage over other retail trading systems.
Professionals also have strategies that can possibly minimize drawdowns, or declines in portfolios, and increase the accumulation of equity. “We think retail traders should have these as well, which could help them to feel more confident about trading,” TruTrade.IO says. “So, we have provided the ability for traders to hedge their positions against the same financial instruments or against other correlated financial instruments in different asset classes. The software is very systematic and incorporates multiple bar-types and timeframes.”
Institutional traders also understand how to potentially minimize slippage and take advantage of any market condition. “We thought this was vital for retail traders to have, too, so we included bot-add-ons for our post-purchase clients,” TruTrade.IO explains. “With these features, we think that more people will feel comfortable with the idea of trading and will enter the market.”
Will TruTrade.IO's Algorithmic Trading Technology Lead to More Retail Traders?
As political upheaval, natural disasters, and interest rates are just a few of the things that can affect trading, the market will remain complex and necessitate caution. However, the automated software created by TruTrade.IO could be a step in the right direction, as few can deny that the strategies used by professionals have the potential to benefit the retail trader as well.
