We are excited to announce our new strategic partnership agreement with Moody's, to leverage each other’s strengths to bring greater transparency on ESG and sustainability to markets and power better decisions.  

Moody’s will leverage MSCI’s sustainability data and models, which are used by the world’s largest asset managers and asset owners. With access to MSCI data, Moody’s intends over time to migrate its existing ESG data and scores to offering MSCI’s sustainability content through a range of solutions serving Moody’s customers in the banking, insurance and corporate sectors.

MSCI will gain access to Moody’s Orbis database, the world’s leading source of firmographic information with data on more than 500 million entities, to extend its private company ESG coverage.

We are exceptionally pleased to partner with Moody’s to offer MSCI’s ESG and sustainability data to Moody’s broad base of global customers.” said Henry A. Fernandez, Chairman and CEO of MSCI. “Sustainability remains one of the most important trends reshaping the global investment landscape, and the shift to private assets is another. This agreement will help MSCI expand our private company ESG coverage and deliver enhanced solutions across client segments and asset classes.
