ESG Data, Ratings, and Analytics: View From the Buy-Side

Large investment firms should ensure they have unique ESG insights and capabilities to remain competitive.

London, 9 December 2021 – The elevation of environmental, social, and governance or sustainability issues within the investment community has created a vital need for robust data and analytics. The investment management industry has long strived for clean and complete data to support both investment and operations, and ESG data is no different. Many third-party providers have jumped on this opportunity and stepped in to supply not only data but also a host of analytics and ratings on issuers, spanning both corporate and sovereign issuers.

This report, the second in its series, highlights how ESG data and analytics have been integrated into the investment process, the popular ESG analytics, the perceived challenges around the quality of ESG data, the growing use case for ESG regulatory compliance, and the buy-side approach to ESG ratings. It is based on Aite-Novarica Group’s survey and interviews of 55 individuals from buy-side market participants between March 2021 and June 2021.
