Established in 2013, the Arabesque Group is a leading global financial technology company that combines AI and ESG big data to assess the performance and sustainability of corporations worldwide.
Our investment strategy was developed at Barclays Bank between 2010 and 2013 in cooperation with professors from the universities of Stanford, Cambridge, Oxford and the Fraunhofer Society. Following a management buyout, Arabesque launched its first funds in 2014.
The mission of the Arabesque Group is to contribute to the mainstreaming of sustainable finance through our asset management services and ESG data platform, Arabesque S-Ray.
S-Ray® is an AI-based tool developed by Arabesque that analyses the sustainability performance of over 7,200 of the world’s largest listed corporations using self-learning quantitative models.
The quantitative technology of S-Ray enables each user to evaluate the alpha impact of sustainability, and its dynamic, daily frequency data products and services are today used by some of the world’s leading financial institutions, investors, corporations and consultants.
We benefit from a board comprised of global leaders with extensive experience in the areas of corporate responsibility, responsible investment, environmental activism, human rights and gender inclusion. They include Georg Kell, founding Executive Director of the UN Global Compact; Barbara Krumsiek, former President and CEO of Calvert Investments; Dr Carolyn Woo, former President of Catholic Relief Services; John Ruggie, Professor of Human Rights and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School; and Yolanda Kakabadse, former President of WWF International.
At Arabesque, we are guided by the belief that sustainability factors are closely linked to business performance, and are driven to make sustainable finance available to all.
