FinMason will Redistribute OWL Analytics’ ESG data via Proprietary API
FinMason, an investment analytics provider that enables WealthTech platforms to accelerate development and time-to-market, has announced that it has been selected by First Rate, a provider of financial service solutions to the wealth management industry, to deliver ESG data from OWL Analytics via the FinRiver API. OWL Analytics, an alternative data company that focuses on environmental, social, and governance ESG research, became a FinMason data-redistribution partner back in June.
“We’re excited to be bringing ESG data to our users, enabling them to paint a more holistic picture of their clients’ financial situations and options,” said Bo McWilliams, Chief Technology Officer of First Rate. “FinMason’s state-of-the-art APIs allows us to integrate and deliver OWL’s proprietary ESG rankings with minimal effort, reducing cost and accelerating time to market.”
“We think this is a wonderful opportunity to help First Rate provide their customers with powerful tools to analyze the ESG characteristics of portfolios and investments,” said Benjamin Webster, CEO of OWL Analytics. “Efficient, integrated ESG portfolio reporting just hasn’t existed in the wealth technology space. By being a first-mover to provide ESG analytics seamlessly in their technology, First Rate further cements themselves as an industry innovator
FinMason’s data redistribution service lets fintech and wealthtech firms access data feeds from partnered third-party providers via FinMason’s best-in-breed API. The service gives providers an additional channel for delivering their data that is flexible and can be easily integrated by interested firms. The list of partnered redistribution firms is constantly growing to help firms connect with the data partners best-suited to meet their preferences and needs.
“First Rate has a long track record of being tech-forward, capitalizing on the latest tech to best serve their clients,” said Kendrick Wakeman, CEO of FinMason. “I’m looking forward to the innovative ways they’ll leverage ESG and other newly-accessible data providers to put their clients on a path to success.”
This partnership closely follows the announcement that BodesWell.io, a graduate of FinMason’s FinSpring accelerator program, officially partnered with FinMason.
