ESG Fin Tech100 2022 Website

KYND Limited, a leader in cyber risk management, today announced its inclusion in the second annual ESGFinTech100 list. Organised by specialist research firm Fintech Global in response to the surging demand for ESG tech solutions in financial services, this initiative shines a spotlight on the world’s most progressive ESG solution providers adept at effectively addressing the challenges and opportunities within insurance, banking, wealth management and capital markets.

In an era where corporate cyber-attacks escalate in both frequency and severity, digital risks have become a fundamental challenge to corporate sustainability. Given its strong alignment to financial and investment risk, elevated regulatory scrutiny, and potential real-world impact, cybersecurity is evolving into key consideration for investors. As a result, to achieve their ESG goals and remain resilient with today’s dynamic threat environment, organisations are increasingly urged to incorporate cyber risk management into their overarching ESG strategy.

With cyber resilience becoming a pivotal factor for sustainability, KYND garnered recognition for its exceptional use of technology to deliver a suite of powerful and effective solutions for wealth managers, financial advisors, and their clients, enabling them to take the lead on complex cyber risk. From pre-transaction due diligence to third-party ESG screening to daily portfolio management, KYND provides unrivalled, instant visibility into an organisation’s attack surface for every stage of the investment lifecycle, as well as tailored, prioritised remediation recommendations to help improve the organisation’s cyber posture. By fusing together its industry-recognised risk intelligence and expert advisory support, KYND enables proactive cyber risk management as part of the day-to-day business activity that fortifies business and cyber resilience, positively affects ESG compliance, and bolsters stakeholder trust.

Andy Thomas, CEO and Founder of KYND, commented: “We’re honoured to once again be recognised by FinTech Global for our commitment to enabling the corporate world to take control over digital threats. In today's landscape, cyber risk stands as the foremost immediate threat facing businesses. As cyber security rightfully rises to the top of the ESG agenda, we will continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible and remain dedicated to delivering world-class, actionable risk intelligence and unparalleled value to our partners in the financial sector and their clients globally.”

Richard Sachar, Director at FinTech Global, remarked: "With the impending deadline of ESRS and many other ESG regulations currently in the works around the world, it is clear that ESG is not a passing phase. Pressures are only going to increase for financial institutions, and greenwashing will bring financial and reputational damage."
