Which is then used to align to industry consensus ESG risk analysis. They cover more than 50’000 public companies, 280’000+ funds from 198 countries and 188 governments. vestr, headquartered in Switzerland, provides a cloud-based solution to some of the world’s largest structured products issuing houses. Via vestr’s market-leading platform, thousands of asset managers and hundreds of thousands of individual investors will be able to integrate ESG rating capabilities into their client reports.

Technology facilitates ESG development

With increasing investor attention towards sustainability goals of their investments, the partnership between Clarity AI and vestr is the latest example of technology facilitating this development. The additional reporting feature allows asset managers to disclose their customised investment activities transparently and in a detailed manner.

“We are very excited to see our capabilities live in vestr’s DELTA platform and to be able to bring societal impact to markets to an even broader base of clients.” said Daniel Gonzalez, Head of Distribution Platforms at Clarity AI.

“We have the most comprehensive sustainability tech kit available on the market, and we are thrilled that vestr clients will have the ability to access our Industry Consensus ESG Risk, Exposures, ESG Impact, Impact Highlights, UN SDGs, and Climate analytics and assessment capabilities.”

Rico Blaser, Co-Founder and CEO of vestr, shares that “We anticipate our clients’ journey. Investors are increasingly applying these non-financial factors as part of their analysis process to identify material risks and growth opportunities. While ESG metrics are not part of the mandatory financial reporting, companies are increasingly making disclosures in their annual reports or in a standalone sustainability report. And we want to support this development.”
