As of today, TietoEVRY WealthMapper customers will be able to see Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) scores, broken down into the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, across their investment portfolios. This visibility will allow investors to understand where they are investing and what impact those investments may have on the world.
This new partnership comes as a response to regulatory changes, with governments around the world implementing standard processes and incorporating ESG requirements into laws and regulations.
ESG compliance and investing has become a very important topic for investors, customers, and the world at large. The Nordic market is especially forward thinking in relation to sustainability and ESG investing.
With this partnership, TietoEVRY WealthMapper customers will be able to provide end users with ESG scores across their portfolios. Users will immediately be able to see the ESG performance of their holdings and what environmental and social issues they may have exposure to.
'Incorporating these ESG scores into the WealthMapper platform will provide additional value to our customers and strengthened our position as a sustainable organisation that delivers new services, concepts and innovations to the market. The Nordic region is a leader when it comes to sustainability and this partnership will allow TietoEVRY and its customers to stay at the forefront of this trend,' says Sameer Datye, Head of Insurance and Wealth Solutions at TietoEVRY
'With TietoEVRY we are aligned on the fact that measuring ESG performance only through traditional in-bound information could lead to an incomplete assessment, as data is partial, and the nature of such disclosure is strictly connected to the particular reporting framework chosen by the company. Therefore, integrating this assessment with the analysis of great amounts of external alternative data generated by company stakeholders, provides a more complete picture of corporate ESG performance,' says Paul Holleran, International Business Manager at FinScience.
FinScience collects two million documents, pages, and other sources of information daily, and their sophisticated Artificial Intelligence analyses this information to provide accurate ESG scores that represent a factual picture of a company's ESG performance. These scores are provided by FinScience alongside sector averages and global averages.
