The new module with the ESG risk scores provided by Clarity AI is relevant to Infront's clients in wealth management, private banking, family offices, advisors and all consumers of ESG data who want ready-to-use solutions and risk scores. It allows investors to evaluate just how well companies and countries in their portfolio are managing their environmental, social and governance-related risks and opportunities.

Infront additionally calculates ESG aggregates based on industries, so analyses and comparisons can be made at industry level as well.

ESG risk scores are easy to implement and can be used instantly, for example, while in conversation with clients. Also unique in our products is the ability to link the company score to bonds”, says Harvey Vo, Product Manager Content Proposition, Infront.

“We are happy to offer our innovative ESG module in all of Infront’s core products, leveraging on our recognized expertise in third-party data harmonization and comparative analytics tools. Users of our core products will be able to easily integrate key sustainability metrics into their workflows.
