The environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors shaping the long-term sustainability of investments have an increasingly important role to play in guiding financial strategies nowadays. As we have previously touched upon, these considerations have not only recently become a highly emphasized industry buzzword, but have also contributed to bringing about heightened reporting standards to the financial sector. In this third and final installment of our ESG series, we examine how Owlin’s cutting-edge digital solutions can help companies utilize these considerations within sustainable investment strategies.
As a fast-moving company shaping a better-informed world through a natural language processing technology that spots, curates, and translates sources from 12 different languages in near real time, Owlin’s value to its users is evident. Companies in the financial sector utilize the company’s dashboard on a daily basis to help them stay ahead of the curve within the industry’s highly competitive landscape. With their strategic long-term nature. ESGs’ recent rise in importance is in many ways a wonderful manifestation of that hunger for combining data and technology to help pave a better and more sustainable path forward for the financial sector.
Owlin’s correspondence with the core values of ESGs is largely obvious. With its AI-powered news filtration and categorization technology, Owlin provides users with a near-real-time avenue to reduce the amount of time and manpower required to sift through news. That capability is largely handy within ESG investment strategies, which naturally rely on large amounts of data to ensure mindful sustainability prioritizations.
Owlin’s technology is similarly beneficial within ESG investing in that it affords its users with useful non-financial information that is increasingly tied to investments’ long-term health. Unlike more traditional investment strategies, ESG investing is notable for its view of the impact that non-financial considerations can have on determining the overall return on investments. The Owlin algorithm is specifically trained to spot such often-hidden layers, presenting them to users in easy-to-understand insights that are ready-made for immediate implementations. What’s more is that the Owlin dashboard now provides access to non-news sources, in the process allowing users to better forecast their strategies as regulators across Europe and around the world grow increasingly mindful of the importance of publicly disclosing sustainability reports.
Another area where Owlin presents benefits to investors seeking mindful ESG strategies can be seen within geographical locations where data might be lacking. While a wealth of information is available on companies in the developed world, there is a clear shortage within less-developed areas around the globe. That is naturally problematic given the interconnected nature of today’s global financial sector. Through its continuously expansive language offerings, Owlin provides users with varied important insights in areas where data might be less readily available.
As ESG continues to rise in importance, Owlin’s services are set to similarly expand to meet the needs of forward-thinking investors. A better-informed world is a more sustainable one after all.
