The Lyxor Datathon launches on 3, 4 and 5 April as part of our partnership with Liberté Living-Lab (1). The Datathon sets out to understand the links between the financial performance of assets and companies’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria, in investment decisions. It will also pinpoint factors likely to tilt savings decisions towards sustainable finance.

Ten or so multidisciplinary teams from Lyxor and Société Générale Group (managers, sales representatives, SRI experts, data scientists and marketing specialists) will be working on the Datathon. In an Open Innovation approach, Liberté Living-Lab will draw on complementary expertise (UX designers, mentors, consultants and data experts) from the Louis Bachelier Institute’s DatLab (2) and start-ups such as Jalgos (3) and Alphien (4).

For three days, the teams will work on this data innovation challenge processing and cross-referencing financial data sets made available by Lyxor together with extra-financial data provided by MSCI. In addition to the data processing, a review of the scientific literature, produced in partnership with the Institut Louis Bachelier, will pinpoint quantitative and qualitative academic analyses covering ESG themes favoured by investors and savers.

This ‘Positive Finance’ Datathon is part of Lyxor’s commitment to meeting the challenges of climate change and the growing demand for responsible investment. This pledge is at the heart of Lyxor’s active and passive management, its capacity to assess ESG and climate risks and its voting policy which is in line with Lyxor’s role as an engaged and responsible shareholder.

According to Marc Duval (Head of Private Wealth Investments at Lyxor and sponsor of the Positive Finance Project): «This “Positive Finance” Datathon reflects our commitment to innovation to address future challenges by helping to identify potential financial and non-financial drivers that could increase investors' and savers' interest in sustainable investments ».

According to Marylène Vicarini (Co-founder of the Liberté Living-Lab) : « As Liberté Living-Lab’s first partner, Lyxor has made LLL its laboratory for experimentation and acceleration of projects. Our desire to correlate economic performance and impact research for society brings together our two companies around the same vision”.
