London - Broadridge Financial Solutions has announced an agreement with MSCI ESG Research to add its ESG Fund Metrics to Broadridge's Global Market Intelligence, the platform for domestic and cross-border fund data and analytics. Under the agreement, key MSCI ESG Fund Metrics will be available on the platform to provide an increased level of transparency on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) quality and characteristics of over 26,000 mutual funds and ETFs covered by MSCI ESG Research.
Global Market Intelligence, which provides detailed information on 80,000 mutual funds and ETFs globally, will incorporate the ESG quality scores, sustainable impact, carbon intensity metric and value alignment scores on every fund tracked by MSCI ESG Research directly on to its platform. This combination allows users to analyze fund level ESG factors across product categories, markets and active and passive strategies. It also gives investment managers the ability to review and compare competitive products by their size, flows and growth trajectory.
"Asset managers and investors are increasing their attention on sustainable, responsible and impact investing - demanding more details on fund level ESG factors to better inform their buying decisions," said Stephanie Clarke, senior vice president, Global Market Intelligence at Broadridge. "By adding ESG factors to our platform, we are responding to our clients' needs by providing another layer of data and analytics to provide deeper intelligence, comparisons and benchmarking across investment lineups."
