Sustainalytics opens Sydney office

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) research firm Sustainalytics has opened a new office in Sydney.


Sustainalytics, which provides ESG research, opened its office in Sydney yesterday on the back of investors’ growing appetite for ESG considerations and sustainable investing.

Sustainalytics chief executive Michael Jantzi said: “Given that the region continues to experience significant growth with more investors integrating ESG factors into their investment strategies, we believe building a long-lasting, on the ground market presence is instrumental to the way in which we support our current and future clients in Australia and New Zealand.”

The opening of a Sydney office follows the firm’s partnership with Morningstar, with Morningstar using Sustainalytics' research to score global mutual and exchange-traded funds on their ESG principles.

Sustainalytics head of Australia Catalina Secreteanu said: “I believe Sustainalytics global ESG and corporate governance research offerings can successfully support investment strategies of Australian investors and broaden the use of these factors within the area of portfolio risk management.”

"We look forward to contributing to the ESG dialogue and to working even more closely with our clients here in the months and years to come."
