Risk, analytics, and index solutions provider Qontigo and ESG data science company RepRisk announced today a partnership integrating RepRisk data with Qontigo’s Axioma portfolio analytics and risk models and its STOXX indices.
RepRisk uses a combination of machine learning and human intelligence to offer quantitative risk analytics and proprietary metrics for nearly 200,000 public and private companies and over 50,000+ infrastructure projects, covering every global sector and market. The RepRisk ESG data covers a broad range of issues, including human rights, labor practices, corruption and the environment. The company’s solutions are used to provide ESG data for clients of some of the largest investors and investment services providers, including BlackRock and JPMorgan.
