Olivier Khatib, elected Fellow of the Royal Society RSA
We are pleased to announce that the CTO and Chief Data Scientist of Sensefolio, Olivier Khatib, was recently elected Fellow of he prestigious Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) following the admission panel’s review.
Olivier has joined the fellowship in London and will be promoting social and ethical investments.
For more than 7 years, at Sensefolio, we’ve been wondering how we could make this world a more ethical, sustainable and eco-conscious place.
For this, we have been building a software retrieving all the publicly available information about a company and rating their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) acts using sophisticated A.I. algorithms. We are now covering more than 30,000 companies and the demand for our ESG data is constantly progressing.
We couldn’t wish for a better situation as we are more than happy to see a growing need for ethical and sustainable data on companies they are investing in. This way, we are expecting more investment professionals to invest in more ethical and sustainable companies and make more reasonable investments, punishing the companies with a “poor” record.
By showcasing my work, I’ll be more than happy to present, collaborate, brainstorm and innovate with fellows of the RSA. Being surrounded with people with the same goal of making a better future will only lead to fruitful conversations and ideas.
