Temenos has launched ESG Investing-as-a-service, helping banks and wealth managers meet the growing demand for sustainable investing.

Running on Temenos Banking Cloud, on any cloud or on-premise, the service accelerates time-to-market for ESG compliant products and reporting while reducing the cost of development.

The solution combines Temenos front office, market data management and digital capabilities, including powerful filtering, scoring and modelling techniques, with external data feeds from multiple providers to deliver a complete end-to-end service.

ESG investing, also called sustainable, socially responsible, or impact investing, is a way of investing in companies based on their commitment to one or more ESG factors. It presents a huge opportunity for banks and wealth management firms to drive growth and differentiate to meet their clients’ increasingly sophisticated ESG needs.

We have a long-lasting partnership with Temenos and its wealth management solution allows us to deliver to our private banking customers advisory and discretionary management services. At ING, we always want to deliver world-class services to our clients. Temenos ESG Investing can accelerate time-to-market for ESG compliant products while reducing the cost of development and adopting standard features

Using the Temenos ESG Investing service, banks can quickly create investment products and power sophisticated digital experiences that allow investors to choose meaningful investments and build a portfolio around their own values.

Wealth managers’ demand for reliable, credible, and transparent ESG data has never been higher. Aite-Novarica Group expects sustainable investing AUM to increase from its current level of US$35.3 trillion by 7% per annum through 2025. Therefore, we safely expect heightened efforts for more data standardization, greater demand for insightful ESG data from reliable data sources, and deeper impact reporting platforms. Temenos’ new offering, ESG Investing-as-a-Service, meets these needs and offers wealth managers a clear path to address growing customer demand for detailed data and transparency relating to their investment choices

The solution provides pre-integration to third-party data vendors with easy-to-understand ratings to evaluate hundreds of ESG factors. These include environmental factors such as carbon footprint and water usage, social factors such as diversity and gender equality, and governance factors such as executive compensation.

At Temenos, our purpose is to power a world of banking that creates opportunities for everyone. With the new ESG Investing service, we will help private banks and wealth managers to become compliant, and their customers invest with a purpose. Available as a service on our open platform for composable banking, it provides a fast track for our banking clients to launch innovative ESG investment products underpinned by robust, compliant processes, including new MiFID rules applicable in the EU from August 2022
Alexandre Duret, Product Director – Wealth, Temenos
