A U.S. Based Wealth Manager
A wealth manager with over $60 billion in U.S. municipal bonds, covering over 10,000 positions, had begun to build out a database with the goal of assessing the ESG performance of their municipal assets. The wealth manager only had basic data elements in place and needed a deep dive approach to be able to accurately assess risk.
By utilizing the ESG Muni QualityScore, and underlying data, the client was able to quickly build out the database it envisioned to assess risk in this very large marketplace. The client was also able to build out its own ESG scoring solution, while utilizing the ESG Muni QualityScore as an internal benchmark.
