As regulations evolve and potential ESG disclosures take shape in the US, including the recent Climate Corporate Accountability Act passed just last month in California, investment firms are scrambling to build up their access to ESG research, rankings, and data. According to data from Refinitiv Lipper, investments in ESG strategies have continued to generate record flows; $649 billion flowed into ESG funds globally from January 1, 2021, through November 30, 2021. As the market is poised to reach $1 trillion in Assets Under Management by 2030, investment firms need to move quickly to incorporate ESG information into their investment processes to mitigate risk, comply with emerging requirements, and achieve alpha for clients.
Clarity AI’s sustainability insights and capabilities cover more than 30,000 companies, 198 countries and 187 local governments, and 135,000 investment funds to bolster investment reporting. Coupled with Sentieo’s platform that features AI-powered search and innovative research management tools, the new ESG Risk Score feature embedded into the Sentieo dashboard and powered by Clarity AI adds a critical dimension to an investor’s portfolio.
“We’re excited to partner with Sentieo to reach an even larger client base that can help bring societal impact to markets, which is our mission,” said Clarity AI’s Daniel Gonzalez, Head of Distribution Platforms. “Via our partnership with Sentieo, we’re excited to offer sustainability assessment capabilities around ESG risk, which is a crucial slice of our 360-degree approach and includes our proprietary science-based methodologies on risk informed by international standards, such as the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board.”
The ESG Risk Score acts as an additional parameter for investors when making informed and socially efficient investments and provides insights into the measurement and management of a company’s specific ESG risks and opportunities in real time. It also ensures investors can drill down into the Risk Score specifics, isolating the three individual ESG indicators – Environmental, Social and Governance – for further analysis. Building upon Sentieo’s leading integration capabilities, customers will have seamless access to Risk Score data directly from their existing workflow and be able to incorporate additional ESG data sources from within the Sentieo platform.
“ESG investing is experiencing an unprecedented boom and institutional investors are trying to rapidly assimilate as much data and insights as they can to benefit their portfolios,” commented Sentieo CEO, David Lichtblau. “By partnering with Clarity AI, we can provide customers with access to the ESG data sources they require and leverage the power of the Sentieo platform to draw out the insights needed to better understand ESG risks and opportunities.”
