The Importance

Arabesque AI combines AI and ESG data in a single technology platform to deliver alpha and hyper-customization at scale, offering Portfolio Management as a Service. We are empowering a new generation of portfolio managers to meet the demands of this changing world.

Using deep learning and raw ESG and sustainability data for more than 30,000 companies from strategic partner ESG Book, Arabesque AI automates the complex and costly processes of integrating multiple financial and non-financial dimensions and preferences into portfolios. The engine also ensures portfolios align with core regulatory requirements such as the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), generating portfolios compliant with SFDR Article 8 and 9 labels as required.

Arabesque AI’s alpha engine estimates returns across a universe of more than 20,000 stocks, assessing billions of data points against multiple dimensions daily. The engine represents an evolution of quant investing, moving from a factor-based approach to a machine learning model to meet today’s multidimensional analysis requirements by assessing more than 250 features.
