Data Feed by SIGWATCH

Added to Marketplace: May 24, 2021


An independent and far-reaching data source for both reputational and ESG monitoring. SIGWATCH is used to supplement more conventional ESG data sources that are typically self-reported, restricted to listed companies only and focus on only a few ESG factors with our global NGO signals.

Live tracking of 9,000+ NGOs and their signals, with 60,000+ NGO signals spanning the last 10 years, targeting over 18,000 corporations. By going straight to source, rather than media, SIGWATCH’s provides the most extensive and timely NGO data feed on the market.

All NGO signals are tagged, taxonomized and quantified with the end user having access to either scores and/or the underlying signal. NGO campaigns are assessed both by sector and by entity : our robust and transparent methodology adjusts signal score based on factors such as NGO influence, signal sentiment and prominence. Tagging includes Tickers (where applicable), ISINs and FIGI codes.
