Explore our wide range of critical support tools for asset managers:
Tailoring solutions for an asset manager to support its journey to net-zero carbon emissions.
One of world’s largest asset managers is a UN PRI signatory and Climate Action 100+ member. The US-based company set a net-zero target and was looking for a way to measure, monitor and report on its net-zero journey.
We delivered an integrated set of tools, data and insights with our Climate Lab Enterprise platform to help the firm actively manage its five-year interim targets leading to its commitment to reach net-zero by 2050. Access to private asset data was critical given a large allocation to private investments.
The asset manager included climate change as a strategic risk in its risk management process and was able to identify companies, portfolios and funds that were impacting its trajectory using Implied Temperature Rise metrics to support investment selection, portfolio repositioning and engagement.
Fueling an asset manager’s innovation to deliver product differentiation.
One of the largest mutual fund organizations in the world based in the U.S. sought a solution to educate financial advisors about factor exposures. They required a robust infrastructure to power an easy-to-understand front-end advisor tool.
We developed an application comprised of custom defined MSCI tools that provide factor exposures and optimization for the client’s front-end Factor Investing Tool.
MSCI Factor applications provided the necessary technology our client needed to differentiate their products. The advisor tool enables financial advisors to customize investors’ tilts toward the factors that influence portfolio performance.
Supporting an asset manager’s desire to augment its research and advisory capabilities.
A global investment management firm based in Europe was seeking to enhance long-term returns while managing financial environmental, social and governance-related risks for clients worldwide.
We provided a robust data set of ESG ratings and analytics for the firm to integrate into their global systems and processes.
The client incorporated MSCI ESG criteria across quantitative strategies, risk management, research and corporate advisory. The firm was able to deliver new products, stay on top of key risks and advise corporate clients building on this ESG expertise.
