"In addition to this strong growth, we launched several new technology-driven products including Textual Data Analytics and Kensho's Scribe, which add new capabilities to our earnings call transcript business. New ESG-related products include Climate Risk Analysis by Trucost, the launch of Platts low-sulfur marine fuel futures contracts, and the launch of E-mini S&P 500 ESG Futures contracts. These financial results and new product launches demonstrate our continued execution on our investment and productivity initiatives."
