Buy-side firms are expected to increase investment in ESG data management over the next two years as they prioritise data availability, comparability, usability and workflow integration. For those that decide to outsource ESG data management capabilities, favoured models will be based on Data-as-a-Service.
Taking a snapshot of buy-side firms’ ESG data management plans, research commissioned by cloud-based market data management services company Alveo, shows 90% of executives polled across buy-side firms in the UK, US and Asia expect investment in ESG data management to increase over the next two years, with 57% anticipating an over 25% increase in that timeframe.
Key capabilities include AI and machine learning (ML), with 98% of firms using these technologies for analytics in their approach to ESG data management today, although only 35% are making extensive use of these capabilities.
