Our Technology


Data Extraction

Source data is both vast and complex, we deploy thousands of servers within our framework to give our clients the equivalent capacity of an army of analysts.

We scan over 6000 data suppliers and provide a credibility check of each source before it gets to our clients, no stone should be left unturned. Our rich multi-language collection of synonyms are based on formal reporting guidelines and mainstream dictionaries of key ESG terms.


Natural Language Processing

We build our own custom GPT-3 inspired and Bert-based transformer models to read and scan complex topic terminologies such as sustainability or financial reporting issues across billions of document-based data.

Our systems also utlilizes feedback from usage to increase it's transfer learning to eventually surpass human ability.



It can take years of industry experience to be able to read financial news and documents to monitor results closely and amend ethical investment criteria accordingly. This is where standard NLP engines fall behind.

By exploring and adapting some of the most up-to-date models from research papers the team at Permutable has trained our models to read the news just like financial analysts - in a nano fraction of the time it would normally take to do so.
