Morningstar, Inc. Reports Second-Quarter 2020 Financial Results
CHICAGO, July 29, 2020 - Morningstar, Inc. (Nasdaq: MORN), a leading provider of independent investment research, today announced second-quarter 2020 financial results reflecting the resilience of its business.
"Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our teams continue to help investors successfully manage their personal portfolios and professional practices, underscoring the importance of our mission,” said Kunal Kapoor, Morningstar’s chief executive officer. “In the second quarter, the recurring nature of our license-based revenue and expense control supported our ability to continue funding longer-term growth initiatives. For instance, we recently welcomed Sustainalytics into the Morningstar family, a timely addition that highlights our belief in environmental, social, and governance factors as the building blocks of a more just, sustainable global economy. Sustainalytics data underpins the Morningstar Minority Empowerment Index series, which features companies that have embedded strong racial and ethnic diversification policies into their corporate cultures. We are committed to furthering our own practices as it relates to racial diversity, upholding a culture of equity and inclusion at Morningstar."
