Synechron Inc., a leading digital transformation consulting firm focused exclusively on the financial services industry, today announced its partnership with RavenPack, the leading data analytics provider for financial services.

Synechron and RavenPack have partnered to provide augmented data analytics capabilities that are built into two of the new InvestTech Accelerator solutions that Synechron launched this past October to address the needs of buy-side asset management and wealth management firms. These Accelerator solutions include: ESG Booster which performs ESG analysis, and 360+ which provides an individualized 360-degree view of each customer. This new, enhanced data analytics capability will enable investment professionals to make more informed decisions by incorporating the effects of public information into their models and workflows.

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) is increasingly subject to investor scrutiny. However, the absence of well-defined norms and the slow pace of updates to company ratings makes it difficult for the buy-side to make informed and timely decisions. Synechron’s ESG Booster was launched to evaluate and normalize current ESG performance through portfolio-level analysis against custom ESG metrics. This expanded offering will provide ESG-focused discretionary investors with ‘nowcasting’ for a clearer, more continuous, and more encompassing vantage point. Through this new partnership, ESG Booster will now access news sentiment data, and media attention scores produced by RavenPack from over 254,000 global sources of premium news, regulatory and press wires, and thousands of online publications.


Sentiment analysis can be a powerful add-on to finding signals for both public and private companies.  When implemented properly by filtering out noise, it can also serve as a nowcasting tool in certain situations, where the current data/ratings are traditionally lagging, and Investors are looking for ways to surface ‘leading indicators’. There is a wide range of valuable use case - from the prediction of investment performance, analysis of IPO/debt issuance timings, and for prospecting in wealth management/private banking/investment management.      

For investment management firms, understanding each individual customer’s unique needs is the gateway to a fuller and more lasting relationship, but it’s difficult to see the whole context because relevant information is scattered. Synechron’s 360+ was launched to provide a holistic, 360-degree view of a customer based not only upon past and current assets, but on current and historical behavioral patterns. With the addition of news analytics from RavenPack, 360+ users will now benefit from additional insights, including unscheduled news, negative events and counter-party risk, all derived from unstructured content covering 90,000+ global, public and private companies, and 160,000+ macro entities that better inform clients’ risk, relationships and research.
