Coverage Update

Dec 30, 2022

In the course of 2023, ESG Impact Ratings and ESG data will also be available for small caps globally reaching 10’000 issuers. The expanded coverage encloses equity as well as bond.

To meet the growing market demand Inrate launched a key project to enlarge the coverage in order to be able to offer a very attractive set of ESG impact ratings and ESG data. The new coverage, fully available by the fourth quarter of 2023 will include all major issuers of the most used global benchmarks regarding equities and bonds. In the first step of the enlargement, European small caps and US small and mid caps are added to our standard coverage. We will continue to update you on further coverage expansion to reach 10’000 issuers.

Inrate has been providing ESG services since 1991.

Financial market infrastructure provider SIX announced today the launch of a new climate data offering, aimed at supporting investors in reporting and monitoring of climate factors, and in climate-related investment and risk decision making.

The climate data sets, from various data providers in a range of industries, will provide clients with modelled and reported emissions data, covering over 33,000 companies globally, and bringing together multiple data sets on regulatory, historical and forward-looking climate impacts from providers including MSCI and Inrate. SIX also announced that it has recently entered into an agreement with environmental disclosure platform CDP to offer access to its global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Dataset across various industries.

According to SIX, the new data sets come as investors increasingly require ESG and climate data to monitor investment decisions and to meet growing regulatory disclosure requirements, including the EU’s SFDR and the U.S.’ upcoming SEC Climate Disclosure Rules.

Martina Macpherson, Head ESG Product Strategy and Management, Financial Information, SIX, said:

“Understanding, measuring and managing climate risk and opportunities, as well as the impact that these can have on investment decisions, is a critical area of focus for market participants and policy makers alike. As more climate risk monitoring and reporting is required globally, the cost of compliance is increasing – both in operations and in terms of specialist ESG resources. SIX works with established providers of basic and specific ESG and climate data in the market.”
