The ESG Challenge
ESG has become top-of-mind for institutional investors worldwide. According to Bloomberg, global ESG assets on track to exceed $53T by 2025, representing more than a third of the $140.5T in projected AUMs. Over 80% of millennial investors now invest based on ESG factors. In Europe alone, ESG fund AUMs will top 50% of total mutual fund assets by 2025, representing a staggering 28.8% CAGR.
ESG intelligence and benchmarking have become mission-critical for investors to manage risk, boost investment returns, attract more AUMs, deepen client engagement, boost regulatory compliance, and improve stewardship.
However, a lack of ESG disclosure standards, opaque and oftentimes conflicting ESG rating models, and huge data volumes make it hard to pinpoint ESG-related risks, opportunities, issues, and benchmarks from mountains of noisy data and reports that analysts can never have the time to read. This in turn negatively impacts data-driven investment decision-making and client relationships.
