Interactive Brokers adds more ESG pillar scores and scanners in TWS platform
Three additional ESG scores have been introduced, such as an Environmental Pillar Score which is a weighted average score of Resource Use, Environmental Innovation and Emissions category scores.
Online trading major Interactive Brokers Group, Inc. (IEX:IBKR) continues to bolster the capabilities of its TWS platform. The latest (beta) version of the platform sees the introduction of additional ESG pillar scores and scanners.
In addition to the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) scores and data points about which FinanceFeeds reported several months ago, Interactive Brokers has added three more ESG pillar scores, introduced ESG scores in the Advanced Quotes Details window, and included them in the Advanced Market Scanners.
The three additional ESG scores include:
- Environmental Pillar Score which is a weighted average score of Resource Use, Environmental Innovation and Emissions category scores;
- Social Pillar Score which is the weighted average of the Workforce, Human Rights, Community and Product Responsibility category scores; and
- Corporate Governance Score which is the weighted average of the Management, Shareholders and CSR Strategy category scores.
Advanced Quote Details now displays ESG Scores for over 6,000 companies globally. Also, Advanced Market Scanners can now be used to scan for stocks of companies with the highest or lowest of any of the 16 ESG scores, including the new Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance Pillar Scores.
The most recent set of enhancements made to TWS (beta) include an auto-synchronized Watchlist Library.
The new Watchlist Library provides effortless synchronization of traders’ Watchlists across all platforms, ensuring that they get the latest version regardless of whether they are logging into mobile, desktop, or Client Portal. There is no need to decide which lists to import or sync, as all of a trader’s lists are always available no matter where a trader is.
In addition, the brokerage has made it easier for traders to get started by offering them a library of Watchlists to jump-start their trading. In cases where traders have added a product on desktop that is not yet supported on mobile or Client Portal, it’s preserved and displayed correctly in all versions.
