ESG is the new regulation that stands for Environmental, Social and Governance and at TechRules we are already working on adapting our company to this new law that measures the commitments to ecological sustainability, our community and our corporate governance. This is why ESG parameters are now integrated in our solutions, following the MiFID II standards.
Our complete wealth management solution, Tower, has already integrated this option so in the asset form you can now see the ESG score and also in the portfolio report and the investment proposal. It is expected that new legislative proposals will be approved during 2020, so they will be effective during 2021 and 2022.
Tower will show the sustainability score based on the three factors: environmental, social and governance. The ESG controversy score measures the company’s exposure to environmental, social and governance controversies and negative impacts reflected in the global media.

The punctuation goes from 0 to 100, meaning that a company that has a score of 50 is considered average relative inside a group of similar businesses. A score of 70 means that the company is doing better than most businesses inside its group and totally the opposite would be a score of 30.
This new regulation comes from the necessity to bring these topics again on top of the main issues companies should be dealing right now. With ESG, businesses get a score based on environmental, social and governance factors, to see how they are performing taking into account all these factors. In a society in which the importance of good practices is enormously increasing, it is very valuable that software providers adapt their platforms to meet the new regulation.
Leading the demand of green investing with transparency for both wealth managers and investors
Advisers and wealth managers are using these non-financial factors in their daily work, so they can have a more complete view and decide based on other possible risks and growth opportunities. With this regulation, companies are being analysed and their social labour, the way they manage talent or the relationship between employees become issues as important as paying taxes.
Following MiFID II standards, this integration of ESG parameters with our solutions means that institutional investors and asset managers need to integrate and control all ESG factors in their risk management processes. Transparency is another important issue: companies need to deliver complete and detailed information in all their reports.
