Alternative investment professionals have a growing need to access sustainability data to achieve better risk-adjusted returns. In partnership with our eFront Insight client community and third-party ESG data providers, we have built a sustainability solution to help private market investors monitor and analyze portfolios and investments through an ESG lens. Managers and investors can now establish a rigid, quantifiable ESG monitoring and reporting framework to compare their ESG credentials against closely aligned peer groups, gaining a better understanding of risk and performance.

eFront Insight Sustainability is a by-industry-for-industry solution that provides a quantifiable and consistent ESG monitoring framework to help clients holistically integrate sustainability into their investment processes and meet regulatory and disclosure demands.
To directly address the challenges faced by alternative investment managers, we offer a two-pronged approach utilizing multiple data sources.
Within eFront Insight Sustainability, users can access actionable ESG risk metrics and incident data generated by RepRisk, an ESG data science company, at the company, fund and portfolio level. This data empowers investment managers to proactively understand ESG impact on the valuation and performance of their portfolio and manage risks accordingly. eFront Insight Sustainability provides ESG metrics and scores, while each incident is flagged against the UNGC principle violation.
eFront Insight Sustainability offers a centralized, out-of-the-box ESG toolkit for fund managers to gather and analyze ESG data from their investments. A universal questionnaire and SASB industry-specific discussion points provide investment managers with the data to establish a rigid, quantifiable ESG monitoring and reporting framework, comparing their ESG credentials against closely aligned peer groups and gaining a better understanding of risk and performance.
