In recent years, ESG has grown rapidly and has become a key component in how firms manage risk, construct portfolios, design products, and engage with companies. Despite the ongoing rise in ESG investments and attention given to the topic, investors are still plagued by the challenges of finding the right data and integrating ESG into their processes. While the lack of standardization in ESG investing offers a challenge, it also allows investors to customize their application of ESG and uncover differentiated approaches that add value. As we grow our FactSet ecosystem, ESG content backed by smart technology, combined with sophisticated analytics, offers a compelling competitive advantage.
