Problem

Investments into sustainable solutions are increasingly expected to contribute to the achievement of climate and societal goals. However, investors often struggle to understand the actual impact and sustainability of their investments through the lens of Environmental, Social, and Government (ESG) ratings.

SOLUTION

Matter offers a SaaS-based screening that unlocks critical information about investments, helping retail and institutional investors to understand the sustainability profile of their portfolio.

Based on data from around 50 specialized sustainability sources from around the world, Matter automatically screens investment portfolios against hundreds of sustainability metrics in a few seconds, and creates an overview that is easily understood by both investors and end-users.

KEY CUSTOMERS & INTERNATIONAL PRESENCE

Matter is active in Asia, Europe and North America, and serves a range of different-sized clients from specialized asset managers, to larger, global financial institutions.

Team

Matter has a highly diverse team of 30 people from 10 different countries, with backgrounds in engineering, AI, sustainability and product designers.

Unique selling point

Matter’s software analyzes both the classic ESG risks and the actual impact of companies conduct and products, and presents the results in a nuanced and transparent way.

Asia Connection

According to a 2020 report by Bank of Japan, one of the main challenges for ESG investing in Japan is the lack of screening information. Matter’s solution can provide a path to accelerate the East Asian market for sustainable investing. The company already provides portfolio analysis and reporting solutions to clients in Singapore, and is committed to expanding its activities in the Asian region.

Matter is currently looking for distribution partners and clients to gain a better understanding of the local market and factors that create value for East Asian clients who focus on ESG investing.
