Global Capital Management Firm Automates Data Collection and Reporting Across Its Portfolio

Case Study

The Challenge

With investments in over 130 portfolio companies, this global capital management firm faced a difficult task when it came time to track the ESG performance of these portfolio companies and their associated assets. 

Previously, they had a two-step process for collecting this data which involved; first sending an ESG questionnaire to each portfolio company and second interviewing each portfolio company to identify gaps and validate submissions. This process caused multiple challenges for this client and its portfolio companies including: 

  • Large commitment of time and resources from their team to manually collect, manage, and maintain data from various portfolio companies. 
  • Difficulty engaging and building support for their ESG program among portfolio companies and other stakeholders. 
  • Manually compiling reports based on specific requirements from multiple ESG reporting frameworks. 
  • Lack of standardization and data quality practices for information collected from portfolio companies.  

To overcome these challenges, their team started the search for a solution that could accommodate their complex organizational and reporting requirements.
