Fundrella launches ESG Fund Search Engine 2.0

Fundrella is delighted to announce the launch of a new suite of data available in its’ enhanced fund search engine. By incorporating the ESG data points available through the European ESG template, as a complement to Fundrella’s 50+ proprietary ESG data points, the fund selection and analytics platform now offers professional investors hundreds of ESG data points to find, compare and monitor funds with.  

The European ESG template (EET) is part of the European Union’s new regulatory disclosure requirements for financial instruments. During the past few years asset management companies have had to invest immense time and resources into starting to disclose sustainability data in a new format. The disclosure requirements are a key step towards a more standardized financial industry.  

“The findings we have concluded through interviews and focus group discussions with professional investors have been quite unanimous” says Wava Bodin, Founder & CEO of Fundrella. “No one seems to know how to incorporate all this massive and detailed raw data into their daily workflow in fund selection and ESG analysis.” 

Fundrella has dedicated the past year into fine tuning their technology and can now share that the platform has created a way for professional investors to search and compare funds based on hundreds of new ESG parameters, sourced automatically through the EET files.  

“We hope our new search engine will finally help professional investors digest all of this data so that more informed investment decisions can be made to accelerate the sustainable transition”, comments Wava Bodin, “and the best of it all is that we offer all ESG data and this easy, quick and intuitive fund search functionality free of charge for all professional investors, globally”.  

Asset managers will also benefit from this newly incorporated data that enables them to benchmark their funds’ ESG positioning relative to peers, in terms of hundreds of ESG data points. Today Fundrella’s growing client base of global asset managers use Fundrella’s analytics to gain and maintain a competitive edge, to prioritise prospect conversations, and to use data-driven insights to hold better informed conversations with their existing clients.

*The European ESG Template is the official ESG data exchange template in response to the EU's Sustainable Finance Disclosure Rregulation. It is developed by FinDatEx in coordination with European financial industry representatives. The EET provides required data for fund ESG characteristics, with reporting levels based on fund definitions (article 6, 8, and 9). It aims to facilitate data exchange between manufacturers and stakeholders (distributors, insurers, fund investors) for ESG regulatory compliance, including SFDR and related acts under MiFID II and IDD.
