ESG by Stamdata – coming soon

Lately, 12 of Norway’s leading asset managers contributed to a master thesis project at the BI- Business School of Norway by sharing their pains and gains related to ESG-data and SFDR-reporting compliance. The students’ objective was to develop and test an ESG-data value proposition for a new Stamdata service idea using best practice innovation theory, and by building deep knowledge of asset managers’ needs and challenges using open innovation methodology.

Based on the project’s findings, Nordic Trustee/ Stamdata recently initiated an innovation project together with our asset manager clients, with the ambition to build  an ESG-database in line with local needs and requirements, constructed with Stamdata’s technical expertise and Nordic Trustee’s infrastructure. We will use our experience in market data and digitalization to try to overcome the ESG-data challenges the local market faces. The target is to provide an ESG-data service with 100% coverage on bond issuers by the end of 2022.

We would like to thank all the #assetmanagers and Finans Norge/Finance Norway for contributing to the thesis. Finally, a big thank you and congratulations to the students Ragnar Walstad Faraasen, Robert Hyllestad and Aleksander Nervik for the impressive work. Further, a big thanks to their supervisor Prof. Peder Inge Furseth, PhD for guiding them through the complexity of this challenge.

More updates to follow soon.
