London, 18 May 2022: We are excited to announce that our ESG Dashboard has won “ESG Data Initiative of the Year 2022” at the Waters Technology Inside Market Data Award, 2022.

As the importance of ESG continues to grow amongst the investment community, the ESG research and data products marketplace is evolving extremely rapidly, with new entrants joining the market and incumbents constantly updating their offerings.  This makes discovering, trialling and comparing new data providers more challenging for Asset Managers and other investment professionals.

Driven by customer demand, in June 2021, Substantive Research launched an industry-first ESG Dashboard  for the investment community.  Acting as a ‘Trip Advisor’ for ESG Data providers, the ESG dashboard allows investment professionals to stay on top of this quickly changing market, helping them to find the right provider, with the right coverage and expertise, at the right price point for their particular needs.

The ESG Dashboard now covers over 150 ESG data providers and continues to grow in coverage as the market changes. It was adopted rapidly by Substantive Research’s growing customer base, and has been highly successful in helping them to choose the right ESG data provider and drive better ROI in research budget spend.

Mike Carrodus, CEO of Substantive Research, said: “We are absolutely delighted to win this award and gain industry recognition for our ESG Dashboard.  The award is testament to the outstanding team we have across the whole business here at Substantive Research, who day-in, day-out, show immense agility and commitment to the changing needs of our customers.  This award is really for them and I’d like to thank them all and congratulate them on this massive achievement.”

Czarina Reinante, Substantive Research’s Head of ESG Analytics, said: “We will always listen to our clients’ pain points and think about how we can better support their decision making processes.  This award is a powerful vindication of our customer-centric ethos.”
