What data do you provide?

With our data, customers can screen their global risk exposure using 150+ political, human rights, environment and climate risk indices that provide robust scores for any location, asset or entity worldwide.

Our data encompasses 198 countries, 150+ commodities, 74 industries and the Upstream Oil & Gas company universe via our relationship with our sister company Wood Mackenzie. In addition, we are developing industry-leading predictive analytics to forecast potential shifts in key issues like government stability, human rights, civil unrest and the global security landscape, and building a unique projections dataset the provides a robust probabilistic view of the 6-month and 2-year forward trajectory for some of our key ESG and political risk metrics.

Where and how do you source your data?

Over 10 years, we’ve pioneered the quantification of difficult-to-measure risks that combine robust methodologies with a commitment to transparency. Our detailed methodologies explain how we derive our scores and give clients the ability to go behind the headline numbers to understand the risk factors relevant to them.


We use a consistent scoring system across all issues to enable easy benchmarking and comparison of risk, something that is impossible to achieve using a disparate range of open-source alternatives. We source our raw data from a range of internationally recognised sources, both publicly available and private, as well as conducting our own in-house research through our analyst and data science teams.

Who are the data users?

ESG analysts and portfolio managers with institutional investors, working across equities and corporate fixed income, through to sovereign debt, private equity and real assets. We also work extensively with banking E&S, reputational risk, security & infrastructure, compliance and sustainability divisions, as well as corporate investor relations, responsible sourcing, sustainable procurement, ethics & human rights and market entry teams.
