Citi adds ESG scores to Velocity Clarity

Citi has incorporated ESG scores into its securities services data platform, Citi VelocitySM Clarity.

The addition allows clients to analyze the sustainability exposure of their holdings at the portfolio and security level. Citi has developed visualization tools to analyze sustainability measures provided by Arabesque S-Ray and launched Citi ESG World Indices, comprised of best-in-class ESG performers across global markets, based on Arabesque’s ratings.

“ESG considerations now permeate every part of the capital markets, and Citi is committed to being a leader on this front,” said Elree Winnett Seelig, Global Head of ESG for Markets and Securities Services at Citi. “When we look at all the ways we can facilitate the transparency of ESG factors in the market, providing access to data is a critical foundation.”
