Apex Launches Private Markets ESG Benchmarking Database

Global financial services provider Apex Group has launched a verified ESG benchmarking database for the private markets. Apex Group’s ESG Data as a Service (DaaS) platform has been compiled from private market ESG data verified and examined by Apex from more than 400 GPs and 1,500 portfolio companies in more than 45 countries since 2019. The ESG DaaS database includes anonymised data points for peer comparison including environmental and carbon footprints, disclosure and management of climate-related risks and opportunities, DE&I statistics, cybersecurity breaches and best practice, as well as revenue generation from green, sustainable or socially impactful products and services. Apex’s offering consists of four main solutions: ESG benchmarking index for private markets, tailored advisory services with granular sector benchmarking, regular market insights and research updates, and correlation of ESG and financial performance metrics. Joshua Brunert, Global Head of ESG Product Development at Apex Group, said: “When it comes to ESG, it is no longer acceptable for private markets investors to ‘mark their own homework’ in-house. Verified and accurate data underpins meaningful comparisons against international standards and to monitor change over time. With Apex Group’s ESG DaaS Solutions, private markets investors can now accurately compare ESG performance against their peers and sector.” 

The practical information hub for asset owners looking to invest successfully and sustainably for the long term. As best practice evolves, we will share the news, insights and data to guide asset owners on their individual journey to ESG integration.
