The YvesBlue platform meets a large and growing need for aggregated, cohesive and visual information about the ESG risks and growth opportunities of the companies that make up investment portfolios and funds. Anna-Marie and her team’s background in impact investments gives YvesBlue a natural head start and the right to be the standard bearer for consistent, transparent and unbiased ESG data and analytics.”
