Enrich investment processes

Extract operational and investment value from all your datasets.

Put your datasets to work

You can source fundamental and quantitative data from most providers. But these datasets offer few (or zero) opportunities for Asset & Wealth Managers to consistently differentiate from their competitors.

At the same time, investors are demanding more transparent, explainable and customised solutions – but current data capabilities simply lack the depth to efficiently build better and more customisable investment products.

You need a new approach – one that maximises your data’s useability, enriches key facets of portfolio management and provides clients with the investment products and solutions they demand.


Go beyond ESG ratings

Diversity in ESG ratings makes it hard to accurately assess which companies are truly invested in sustainability, and whether they fit your ESG investment principles.

With Affinity, you can leverage more qualitative data to form a deeper understanding of ESG and company transparency, make more robust calls on ESG suitability, and invest in purer ESG-compliant products.
