This month in the Cornerstone Journal of Sustainable Finance & Banking (JSFB), as global markets move into earnings reporting season with trepidation about the ability of share prices to consolidate gains in 2014 and move ahead further, we focus on Data.  We consider Big Data, the Principles for Responsible Data, Data for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Analytics, and Data Overload.  As leaders at Davos including Cicso and Microsoft discuss everything from “Global Standards for Data Storage” to “The Internet of Everything,”  the debate rages on regarding an appropriate balance between the imperative for security and the right to privacy.  We offer this report from leading experts around the world working towards excellence across the capital markets.
