ETF Global Launches Data and Metrics Focused on ESG Sustainability

Friday, December 7, 2018 – Please see yesterday’s Press Release below regarding our new ESG offering that we previewed for all in attendance at last week’s Fall 2018 ETP Forum (www.etpforum.org). The new data will highlight factors that affect a company’s ESG impact and market performance.

NEW YORK
, Dec. 6. 2018 /PRNewswire/ — ETF Global announces new datasets dedicated to environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors.
“The tremendous growth within ESG, combined with a proven partner in Confluence Analytics, will allow us to add value to our customers in the ESG space. It has become an important part of how investors make decisions and Confluence’s predictive metrics only underscore that importance,” said Matthew Litchfield, CFA and Senior Research Analyst at ETF Global.
ETF Global’s offering includes traditional impact-oriented metrics that assess corporate sustainability, as well as, cutting-edge data focusing on how and when ESG factors affect stock performance. This data specifically targets which factors matter most to returns and delivers predictive forecasts at both the constituent and fund levels.
Conor Platt, CEO of Confluence Analytics, added, “We’ve worked in ESG investing for years and have always known these factors mattered to performance.  We can see exactly which ESG factors are the most material, as well as, when and to what extent they matter.  We’re excited to bring this very useful information to investors and to partner with ETF Global.”
