9fin partners with the European Leveraged Finance Association

9th November 2023: 9fin, a leading provider of data, news and predictive analysis for debt capital markets, has today
announced a partnership with the European Leveraged Finance Association (ELFA).

The partnership aims to bring together lenders and borrowers to:
• Help facilitate reporting by borrowers by increasing their understanding of market standards, investor expectations, peer
group performance, regulatory requirements and good practices.
• 9fin will collect, organise and centralise ESG data in markets where sourcing this data has proven difficult.
• Make lender requirements known as 9fin develops tools to help lenders meet regulation, such as the SFDR, and ESG
objectives.

Jack David, Head of ESG at 9fin, commented: “We recognise that access to timely, trustworthy and transparent ESG data for
leverage finance and private markets is the most immediate and difficult challenge facing lenders wanting to fulfil regulatory
requirements, client mandates and ESG objectives. That’s why we are putting together a working group to facilitate meeting
these goals.”

Sabrina Fox, CEO of ELFA commented: “We are excited to welcome 9fin to our Partner Programme and look forward to
working closely together to improve the quality and accuracy of ESG data in the leveraged finance market. A key mission of
ELFA is to increase transparency, and to that end we seek to support borrowers in improving their ESG disclosure to provide
investors with the information they need to make informed investment decisions. Better ESG data collection is central to our
mission.”
