NEW YORK, NY, February 13, 2019 — Caissa, LLC, the leading data and investment technology provider for endowments, foundations, pension funds, family offices, and outsourced CIOs, today announced it will integrate into the Caissa Platform ESG research and ratings from Sustainalytics. Through the Platform, the companies’ mutual clients can now perform enhanced risk reporting and analysis leveraging Sustainalytics’ in-depth ESG research and ratings on over 11,000 companies.
The rapid growth of ESG investing over the last few years has led to increasing investor demand for more sophisticated, materiality-focused ESG insights. Supported by a robust materiality framework, Sustainalytics’ ESG Risk Ratings measure a company’s exposure to industry-specific ESG risks, and how well a company is managing those risks. The firm’s multi-dimensional approach to measuring ESG risk combines the concepts of management and exposure to arrive at an assessment of ESG risk that is comparable across and within industries.
“We are proud to be working with Sustainalytics, a leader in this space, to provide ESG information to our institutional allocator client base,” said Susan Veksler, President and Co-Founder of Caissa. “The Caissa Platform empowers clients with the ability to consider asset allocation decisions across a multitude of dimensions. Now, with this new integration, clients will also be able to incorporate ESG dimensions into their decisions.”
Sustainalytics is delighted to work with Caissa as they help clients integrate ESG considerations into their investment decision-making processes,” said Shila Wattamwar, Sustainalytics’ Director of Indexes and Partnerships. “With institutional investors seeking to better understand their exposure to ESG risks more than ever before, Sustainalytics’ ESG research and ratings can help clients better understand how material ESG insights can impact their portfolios.
