Leading global fund data provider and technology company FE fundinfo has become a member of Spainsif, the Spanish socially responsible investing (SRI) organisation.
Endorsed to join by FinReg360 and Allianz GI, FE fundinfo will now lend its considerable support to the non-profit organisation which was established by entities in promoting SRI across the country.
With the ambition to become an information hub in which SRI-focused entities can meet and exchange ideas, drive change and raise awareness of investment processes among the investment community, public bodies, private companies and among consumers, it includes a wide variety of financial services organisations, service providers, non-profit organisations and trade unions.
As a leading global data provider sitting within the heart of the investment industry, FE fundinfo works with fund managers, fund distributors, financial advisers and other financial services organisations to provide their customers and clients with greater transparency around investment decisions. Over the past 18 months it has considerably enhanced its ESG related offering, providing consulting, reporting, screening and implementation services. This is overseen by its ESG product group, which grew out of ESG research and reporting consultancy, CSSP, which was acquired by FE fundinfo in 2020.
Juan Casadevall, Sales Agent at FE fundinfo (Spain), said:
“It is a fantastic opportunity to join Spainsif and to partner with likeminded organisations in promoting SRI within Spain. We have seen huge growth and interest in SRI across Europe in recent years from both financial organisations and investors and by bringing our expertise to the table, we will be at the forefront of driving this change. With further ESG regulations being refined and honed to help investors understand the nature of their investments, alongside a growing political will at European level it is a great time to be involved in making the case for SRI across the continent.”
