Alygne's ESG Data Now Part of Finastra's Fusion Invest
Finastra, a worldwide supplier of financial software and marketplaces, has entered into a partnership with Alygne, a sustainability technology platform that offers customised ESG alternative data.
This collaboration aims to assist asset managers across the globe in making better-informed ESG investments.
Fusion Invest now has a new connector that seamlessly integrates Alygne's data. This integration enables users to utilise the solution's portfolio management features to ensure that their portfolios align with their ESG values.
Fabien Féron, Senior Product Manager - Fusion Invest at Finastra, stated, "Asset managers are actively seeking to make investments that align with corporate and customer values. However, the absence of data and metrics often makes it difficult. Our customers can now strengthen their decision-making process by accessing Alygne's customised ESG data through our solution. In addition to using conventional financial metrics to track their portfolios, they can conveniently evaluate the impact of trade simulations in both public and private markets."
Fusion Invest is an all-in-one, integrated platform that encompasses the entire investment value chain. The solution provides portfolio insights, automated processes, a real-time Investment Book of Records (IBOR) and multi-GAAP accounting book of records (ABOR). It boasts advanced analytics, extensive asset class coverage, and open technology via digital dashboarding and APIs. These features enable financial institutions to increase returns while minimising operational risks.
Alygne is a sustainability technology platform that provides transparent and accessible ESG-related alternative data on both private and public companies. The platform leverages natural language processing and machine learning to analyse global news, social posts, and corporate announcements, quantifying ESG scores for various aspects.
Alygne operates in conjunction with widely used metrics in global reporting frameworks such as the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standards.
Corinne Grillet, CEO at Alygne, stated, "The integration of our data with Fusion Invest empowers fund managers to make informed decisions based on both financial and extra-financial criteria while being able to quickly adapt to rapidly changing market regulations and conditions. Retail and institutional clients can also leverage this data to showcase their ESG capabilities to their end customers. Our partnership with Finastra brings together top-notch portfolio management and cutting-edge ESG analytics, supporting the global agenda of promoting value-driven investments."
