Alveo integrates MSCI ESG Research content to help clients with fast data onboarding and last mile integration to address firmwide ESG requirements

Alveo is pleased to announce the integration of MSCI ESG Research’s content into its data management solution. Alveo’s clients will have access to the two firms’ respective data and cloud data management capabilities to provide integrated solutions, which more easily puts MSCI’s rich content into clients’ workflows and helps business users self-serve.

With the help of Alveo’s data management technology, MSCI’s content can be cross-referenced and linked with client data sets or content sourced from third-party data sources within a client’s business processes.  Additionally, the collaboration provides the capabilities for fast data onboarding, complete data lineage, data governance, data cleansing, and cloud sharing delivery and last-mile integration into customer’s workflows and cloud data warehouses. Integrated MSCI content includes MSCI ESG Ratings, ESG Controversies and ESG Sustainable Impact Metrics as well as Climate Change Metrics, Business Involvement Screening Research (BISR) and MSCI ESG Global Norms Screening.

Mark Hepsworth, CEO, Alveo, said: “Combining data and data management into a DaaS offering that enables clients to more easily onboard new data, is a growing requirement across the industry. Financial services firms have a crowded change agenda and MSCI’s ESG content is needed not only for buy-side and sell-side regulatory reporting, but across their decision-making workflows including product development, asset allocation and client reporting. We are very pleased to collaborate with MSCI on off-the-shelf, maintained integration to make data onboarding and operational integration as easy as possible.”

Alveo focuses on the integration of market and reference data from multiple external and internal sources covering all asset classes including pricing information, referential information, ESG data and issuer, and corporate actions data. Alveo’s cloud-based data mastering and data quality Data-as-a-Service (“DaaS”) solution tracks the collection, integration, and quality-vetting of a diverse set of content providers.

Eva Meyer, Head of EMEA Product Management, ESG and Climate, at MSCI said: “We are pleased to work with Alveo so that clients can cross-reference and integrate MSCI ESG Research content into Alveo’s data management solution. MSCI ESG Research provides in-depth analysis of emerging and established trends in ESG and climate investment, designed to enable investors to make better decisions for their portfolios.”
