OTCFin provides financial data management, risk and regulatory reporting solutions and services and has helped sophisticated asset managers worldwide to tackle their data integration and reporting challenges across all asset classes and business needs.    The companies believe that working together will help strengthen their collective suite of offerings for investment and risk managers looking to fully integrate ESG factors within their investment process.

Companies, investors, regulators are looking for guidance from leading industry experts in navigating the shift towards a stakeholder-driven economy with consideration of ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) factors.  Leadership is becoming critical at a time of uncertainty during a big shift to sustainability and stakeholder capitalism at the time of the 4th industrial revolution.
