MSCI expands ESG offering
MSCI has launched MSCI ESG GovernanceMetrics, a product delivering corporate governance research and analysis on its MSCI ESG Manager online platform.
MSCI ESG GovernanceMetrics aims at providing institutional investors with corporate governance research and analysis on more than 6,000 companies globally.
The new product, now part of the MSCI ESG ratings product suite, is based on award-winning research developed by GMI Ratings, which was acquired by MSCI ESG Research Inc. last month.
The availability of MSCI ESG GovernanceMetrics on the MSCI ESG Manager platform is designed to allow clients to seamlessly evaluate potential ESG portfolio risk across all three ESG pillars, receive integrated data feeds, and leverage MSCI’s multiple-security data infrastructure.
“This is one of the first visible benefits of MSCI ESG Research’s acquisition of GMI Ratings and a breakthrough for our offering to institutional investors,” said Remy Briand, Managing Director and Head of ESG Research.
“We are excited to bring clients comprehensive, integrated research and analysis on the three E, S and G pillars across equity and fixed income securities through the addition of MSCI ESG GovernanceMetrics.”
