Where and how do you source your data?
RepRisk exclusively focuses on risks to capture adverse information that can have a reputational, compliance, and financial impact on a company. IT takes an outside-in approach to assessing a company, and intentionally excludes any self-reported data. In essence, RepRisk provides a “reality check” on how companies are conducting their business across the world. RepRisk analyses information from media, stakeholders, and other public sources across 101 ESG risk factors – mapped to international frameworks such as the UNPRI, SASB, and the SDGs. Every day, RepRisk screens more than 100,000 sources in 23 languages. It leverages a combination of and advanced machine learning with human analysis to translate big data into curated and actionable research and metrics, using a proprietary, rules-based methodology.
Who are the data users?
The analysis of ESG risks has a clear goal: to identify and assess issues that have financial, compliance, and reputational implications so that financial institutions have the actionable intelligence to make the best financing, investment, and overall business decisions.
Risk management is part of RepRisk’s DNA – and clients come to us because we can help them systematically identify, assess, and monitor ESG risks in their business – whether that’s in their investments (across asset classes from equities to fixed income to private markets to hedge funds), in their client or supplier portfolio, or in their own operations.
Banks integrate RepRisk’s data into their due diligence processes, such as client and transaction reviews, Know Your Customer (KYC), and client onboarding. They can check compliance with internal policies and international standards, such as the Equator Principles, the UN Global Compact, and the UN Guiding Principles for Human Rights. Insurance providers, including export credit agencies, integrate RepRisk’s data in underwriting processes.
Investment management clients use RepRisk’s daily updated data as a risk overlay for ESG integration activities, investment analyses, and portfolio monitoring. Financial data providers and research and advisory firms use RepRisk’s data and partner with RepRisk to amplify their data and research offerings.
Multinational corporations use RepRisk to identify and monitor ESG and business conduct risks related to their suppliers, distributors, and business partners, as well as for peer benchmarking, reputational risk management, and stakeholder management.
