FactSet Research Systems Inc. : RepRisk announces strategic alliance with FactSet to provide environmental, social and governance (ESG) risk data to their terminals

07/26/2012 | 02:51pm EST

Leading provider of ESG risk business intelligence RepRisk AG is pleased to announce the signing of a distribution agreement with FactSet Research Systems (NYSE: FDS | NASDAQ: FDS), a world-recognized provider of financial data and analytical software for investment professionals.

The agreement allows FactSet to publish RepRisk's company research on its financial research platform, allowing easy access for equity and fixed-income analysts, portfolio managers, investment bankers, wealth managers, consultants and legal experts.

RepRisk's quantitative reputational risk indicators for individual companies and sectors, including current and historical data covering the past two years, will be available. On FactSet, users will have access to comprehensive overviews of ESG controversies associated with companies and can access news, captured by RepRisk from a wide range of stakeholder sources, including global, regional and local media, NGOs, government agencies, community groups, think-tanks and social media.

In addition, PDF versions of 'Lite' RepRisk Company Reports are available in the Embargoed Research platform. This enables financial professionals, consultants and advisors to track the environmental, social, governance, and reputational risk exposure of companies worldwide, and select the best performing portfolio constituents for their clients, whilst demonstrating compliance to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment and any ethical and internal policies.

Matthew Sakey, Vice President - Head of Global Research Collection, commented: "With the growing demand for environmental, social and governance risk data in global markets, we see great value in integrating RepRisk's global research on thousands of companies and projects on FactSet."

RepRisk CEO, Philipp Aeby commented: "By incorporating RepRisk business intelligence, FactSet is providing clients with the ability to more easily identify ESG risks related to companies of interest and to thus make better informed decisions based on the assessment of such risks. Our information may differ significantly from that published by the companies themselves and therefore helps to complete the picture. Clients can then assess and proactively mitigate factors that could potentially lead to public outcry and cause reputational and ensuing financial damages."
