Roundtable Discussion: Driving ESG Agendas with Data
Posted on Jul 20, 2023
Citisoft and Carruthers & Jackson, a global data consultancy, recently held an industry roundtable in London, attended by over two dozen operational and technical leaders across the UK asset management industry, service providers and technology firms.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is on everyone’s agenda. Requirements for disclosure and reporting, a lack of consensus on what ESG means for the investment industry, and the difficulty in proving that action was or was not taken in the name of ESG principles remain major sticking points for asset managers. A gap between the noble intentions of ESG and the practicalities of industrializing an ESG investment process persists.
