Introducing ACA Vantage for ESG 

A straightforward and comprehensive solution to track and analyze ESG data, and support PE, private credit, and leveraged loan portfolios

We're pleased to announce ACA Vantage for ESG, a new solution specifically designed to help global private equity and private credit fund managers meet growing regulatory and investor demand for greater transparency in ESG reporting. 

By combining our ESG advisory expertise with our Data and Analytics Solution, Ethos, this new offering creates a unique, comprehensive solution that enables private equity and private credit firms to quickly generate insights around ESG risks, collect and report on ESG metrics, benchmark ESG performance against other public and private companies, and understand actions required to improve ESG performance. 

ACA Vantage for ESG is a flexible software solution that solves data management challenges across private equity and private debt portfolios. With this solution, you can monitor and oversee your portfolio companies’ environmental, social, and governance posture. 

Our team of ESG experts are available to help you select monitoring criteria that: 

  1. align with ESG commitments and frameworks; 
  2. meet investor expectations; and, 
  3. are material to portfolio company’s industries.  

Key features

  • ESG profiling: automated company screening against over 600 ESG metrics from 300+ sources 
  • Ongoing controversy and negative news monitoring
  • Seamless data collection via customizable questionnaires
  • Customizable dashboards for analytics
  • Benchmarking against tailored private and public peer sets

This solution can be paired with ACA Vantage for Cyber which provides cybersecurity portfolio oversight for firms. 

    Why now? 

    It’s increasingly challenging and time consuming to navigate increasing LP pressure to monitor certain ESG topics while also deciphering the disparate monitoring expectations of established ESG frameworks and reporting standards, such as the ESG Data Convergence Initiative (EDCI), Principals for Responsible Investment (PRI), Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), Sustainable Financial Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), and Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB).

    Due to the expansive data requirements related to ESG, clients are looking for a comprehensive, automated solution which generates actionable insights tailored to their portfolio.

    The focus on ESG has risen rapidly in recent years, and so has investors and global regulators demanding greater transparency and reporting. It can be challenging to meet these growing expectations for your portfolio because:

    • Portfolios vary greatly by industry, requiring customized metrics and monitoring
    • Investors seek reporting on differing metrics
    • Information may be limited or unavailable due to investment percentage or influence 
    • Aggregating data across the portfolio can seem overwhelming without a tool built for this purpose, and firms require analytics to understand how the data can be helpful
