State Street boosts ESG
November 15, 2017

State Street today announced it has enhanced its portfolio of environmental, social and governance (ESG) offerings with the launch of ESGXSM, a new analytics tool designed to provide information to help clients bring transparency and standardization to their ESG investing.

State Street also announced agreements with new data providers, including Arabesque, to complement its existing agreement with TruValue Labs, announced earlier this year. State Street says ESGX offers clients the ability to receive their ESG data sets from any or all of the data providers it is collaborating with.

Developed by State Street Global ExchangeSM, State Street's data and analytics business, ESGX will provide clients with a web platform through which they can assess ESG factor exposure in their portfolios, such as a company's carbon footprint, the type of labour used in a supply chain, and board diversity statistics. Clients will also have the ability to review reports, which can be updated daily, that show how the ESG profile of a portfolio has evolved over time.

"Having a view into a company's non-financial profile is increasingly important to the growing number of investors and regulators who understand the impact of ESG factors on risk and returns," said John Plansky, Global Head of State Street Global Exchange.

"The root of firm valuation is the disclosure of relevant information, and it's critical that we bring new technologies to market that can provide added transparency for clients looking to better understand their investment portfolios through an ESG lens."
