Financial data management software provider Alveo has announced the integration of MSCI ESG Research’s content into its platform, the company said in a news release, a move it said would speed onboarding and allow customers to address broad ESG requirements.
MSCI ESG Research is one of the world’s biggest providers of ESG research, information that will now be available to customers of Alveo’s data management solutions. Integrated MSCI content includes data on ESG ratings, controversies, impact metrics, global norms screening and more, the news release said.
“Combining data and data management into a DaaS offering that enables clients to more easily onboard new data, is a growing requirement across the industry,” Alveo CEO Mark Hepsworth said in the release. “Financial services firms have a crowded change agenda and MSCI’s ESG content is needed not only for buy-side and sell-side regulatory reporting, but across their decision-making workflows including product development, asset allocation and client reporting. We are very pleased to collaborate with MSCI on off-the-shelf, maintained integration to make data onboarding and operational integration as easy as possible.”
MSCI ESG Research is an arm of MSCI, which broke off from parent company Morgan Stanley in 2007.
