BNP Paribas release new investment planning tool


BNP Paribas Securities Services has developed a platform to enable its clients to better manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in their investment planning.

The ESG Risk Analytics solution is part of BNP Paribas Securities Services’s Data Navigation Analysis solutions and allows clients to integrate environmental, social and corporate governance factors decision-making process

According to BNP Paribas, the product provides a detailed breakdown of how well clients’ investments and benchmarks rate against an extensive range of ESG factors.

These include environmental factors, such as carbon emissions and energy usage, social factors, such as human rights and community relations and corporate governance factors, such as board diversity and shareholder rights.

The service uses independently sourced data and evaluates up to 750 ESG data points for each company in its database.

This data is then used to analyse clients’ portfolios, providing an overall ESG score, which can be compared to other portfolios and benchmarks.

ESG Risk Analytics also provides much deeper analysis, breaking down a client’s portfolio to country, sector and individual security level.

Patrick Colle, general manager of BNP Paribas Securities Services, said: “ESG is becoming an essential part of the investment decision-making process.”

“However, putting an ESG-aware investment strategy into practice can prove difficult, with data gathering and analysis presenting some of the most testing challenges. Managing this data, analysing it and presenting it in a clear, concise and easily digestible way is the core of what the ESG Risk Analytics solution provides for clients. “

“With this new solution, we aim to help institutional investors overcome obstacles and incorporate ESG into their everyday investment decisions.”
