Courtney Scharff, Qontigo’s Global Head of Strategic Partnerships recently spoke with RepRisk’s CEO, Dr. Philipp Aeby to discuss the partnership. The conversation touched on how RepRisk differentiates its ESG data offerings through full transparency, the challenges of creating ESG data and how asset managers should think about ESG.
This paper focuses on creating SDG portfolios that maximize exposure to one, two or all SDGs. The study shows that it is quite possible to create a portfolio that significantly improves the exposure to SDGs without taking on too much active risk. An optimizer can help manage that active risk.
Dutch pension fund Pensioenfonds PGB is one of the subscribers to the Sustainable Development Investment Asset Owner Platform. The data, backed by some of the largest asset owners in the world, creates a standard for investing in the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Qontigo has entered into a partnership with RepRisk, a pioneer and leader in ESG data science. Qontigo will enable solutions and access to RepRisk ESG risk data via Axioma portfolio analytics and risk models, and build indices under its STOXX family of brands.
Qontigo has made available ISS ESG, Clarity AI and Sustainalytics data within its financial optimizer, Axioma Portfolio Optimizer (APO). Sustainalytics will also be integrated into Axioma Portfolio Analytics (APA) for performance attribution and reporting as well as Axioma Risk Model Machine (RMM), which allows users to create custom risk models.

The SDI AOP helps investors to imbed the UN SDGs into their investment processes. We asked Claudia Kruse of APG, one of the founding members of the SDI AOP, why and how they use the data within their organization.
