ESG data science firm RepRisk and cloud-based data delivery and operations platform Crux Informatics announced today that they have entered into a strategic partnership to deliver RepRisk’s ESG data to the financial services industry.

RepRisk uses a combination of machine learning and human intelligence to offer quantitative risk analytics and proprietary metrics for more than 140,000 public and private companies, covering every global sector and market. Today’s announcement will enable RepRisk’s ESG data to be accessed on demand by financial institutions via a single API.

Alexandra Mihailescu Cichon, Executive Vice President Sales and Marketing at RepRisk said:

“We are excited to embark on this innovative partnership with Crux and that RepRisk is among the first ESG providers. Investors and other financial industry professionals need reliable and daily-updated information on a company’s ESG and business conduct risks to make more informed investment decisions. In a data-driven world, this partnership will enable us to seamlessly deliver RepRisk’s ESG data – the largest dataset of ESG risks with a time series from 2007 – via external API and meet the need of our clients to be able to focus on data rather than onboarding and operating efforts.”

Michael Rude, Head of Go-to-Market at Crux said:

“We are thrilled to have RepRisk’s leading dataset on the Crux platform. RepRisk fundamentally understands the challenges clients deal with in ingesting and making use of valuable data, and we are pleased to be working with them to remove the friction associated with delivering to their clients. We have seen a rise in interest in ESG data products and are happy to work with RepRisk to assist with the delivery of their data to a growing number of clients.”
