Different ESG Flavors Meet a Growing Capital Markets Appetite

ESG data, ratings, and analytics continue to become ingrained in the investment process.

May 25, 2023 – The ESG data, analytics, research, and ratings needs of buy-side institutions continue to evolve and expand as new products are launched to the market and regulatory reporting requirements expand across the EU, the U.S., and the U.K. This means many buy-side firms have turned to third parties for the provision of data, scoring metrics, and deeper analytics and reporting to meet the host of needs across investment, risk, operations, and compliance requirements.

This Impact Report continues Aite-Novarica Group’s research on the use of ESG data, ratings, and analytics in capital markets. It is based on Aite-Novarica Group’s survey and interviews with 25 capital markets participants focusing on asset managers and asset owners.
