Open architecture data approach is core to Qontigo’s ESG strategy
Qontigo, a leading provider of innovative risk, analytics, and index solutions has entered into a partnership with RepRisk, a pioneer and leader in ESG data science. Under this new partnership, Qontigo will enable solutions and access to RepRisk ESG risk data via Axioma portfolio analytics and risk models, and build indices under its STOXX family of brands.
“We are excited to partner with Qontigo, a leader of investment technology solutions and indices, to enable enhanced ESG risk management models and tools powered by RepRisk’s daily-updated, decision-useful data made available to capital owners and investors,” said Alexandra Mihailescu Cichon, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at RepRisk. “Integrating our rules-based, transparent dataset with Qontigo’s incisive analytics and index construction solutions offers the market the necessary sophistication and customization for today’s financial market participants – with broad application from proactively identifying ESG risk in portfolios to deploying impactful index products.”
RepRisk uses artificial intelligence and machine learning combined with human intelligence to systematically analyze public information to identify and assess material ESG risk – covering close to 200,000 public and private companies across all sectors and regions, including emerging and frontier markets. Its outside-in perspective that excludes company self-disclosures from the research process, helps assess how companies conduct their business around the world when it comes to ESG issues. RepRisk provides daily-updated data, with history going back to 2007 – the longest consistent time series in the industry – making the dataset uniquely poised for quantitative analysis and timely decision-making.
“Open architecture is at the heart of our sustainability offering,” said Brian Rosenberg, Chief Revenue Officer for Analytics at Qontigo. “At Qontigo, we focus on collaborating with best-in-class data providers and RepRisk is yet another well-respected, important partner for us as we continue to grow our ESG data ecosystem.
