We develop contextually rich, high performance software and data products to handle the messy and subjective nature of sustainable financial decision making. Whilst acting as useful summaries, ESG scores are no longer enough and to keep up organisations need solutions to understand the context & handle the deluge of ESG disclosures data now available.
We partner with visionaries to deliver solutions that help analysts reveal the hidden links to ESG issues typically obscured by complex supply chains, ownership structures and other factors. We develop knowledge intensive software products using Connected Data technologies, such as Knowledge Graphs which are used by thousands of users every day to make mission critical investment decisions.
