Substantive Research debuts Trip Advisor Dashboard for ESG

Substantive Research, the research discovery and research spend analytics provider for the buyside, has launched an ESG Dashboard for asset managers that enables them to compare and contrast ESG research providers in detail.

The Dashboard or so called “Trip Advisor” not only provides the latest information on existing and new ESG research providers, but also tracks where they have expanded their ESG offerings.

More specifically, it offers information on the number of companies covered as well as the different metrics and data points each provider deploys.

In addition, it examines how often data points are updated, and whether the data addresses an ESG reporting regime such The Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) or The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).

The Dashboard also looks at current geographic or regional expertise and niche specialisms within ESG fields.

The product is in response to the burgeoning growth of research as it increasingly factors into capital allocation decisions, as well as wider stakeholder sentiment.

There are not only more new entrants, but also longer-established providers are continually updating and expanding their offering.

Around 100 ESG research providers are assessed, rising to 150 providers in July and continuing to increase as the supply landscape continues to change

CEO of Substantive Research, says: “From listening to our clients, it was clear that they wanted a single place where they could discover and compare suppliers of ESG research in a practical, conflict-free dashboard, and know that they have the most up-to-date view of this quickly-evolving marketplace.

Clients need to know about new data providers entering the market, but also want to be aware of new products and datasets coming from existing providers. I am delighted to announce that we have built these new capabilities into our platform.”

He adds: “This new Dashboard helps people who are allocating ESG market data budgets, but it is also proving useful to investment professionals who are integrating ESG criteria into their investment process.”
