Performance review of ESG Dataset available from CloudQuant DataSet Catalog…
As Managed Funds decrease in popularity and Passive Funds take over there has been one bright spark for Fund Managers as Investors have realized that they can dramatically influence the behavior of companies through their investments. With each passing month more Millennials come into the trading environment with their well established trends of making purchasing and investing decisions influenced heavily by environmental and social impact. Analysis of ESG friendly ETFs and investment funds have shown them out performing all other asset classes.
We have also seen, over the last year, a dramatic increase in the number of News postings regarding ESG data.
This January 31st post from Barron’s is one of the most recent…
“As sustainable investing becomes more popular, independent firms with these principles are more likely to be acquired.” …
“…competition has increased among asset managers” …”the number of annual mergers among publicly traded asset managers doubled.”
“Sustainable investing has been a bright spot. Last year, flows into these funds in the U.S. more than tripled, marking the fourth year of record flows.”
CloudQuant Alternative Data Catalog
CloudQuant strives to dramatically increase your odds of finding a suitable, appropriate and valuable Alternative Data Set. If you have been in the Alternative Data environment you know how difficult it is to find Alternative Data Sets with proven performance. Do you trust the results supplied by the data vendor (rarely reproducible) or do you carry out your own analysis (too often a monumental waste of time and resources).
CloudQuant researches the most in demand data types, finds sets that have not already had their Alpha consumed. We test the performance of the data and provide a white paper of the results and Python Code to reproduce and confirm the results to your satisfaction (using our leading Python Cloud Backtester CloudQuant Mariner). Head over to our Data Catalog to find out more about our tried and tested Data Sets which include the ESG Data Set from G&S Quotient.
