We help our clients understand and implement responsible investment principles.
The concept of ‘responsible investment’ is now accepted as an important aspect of investing, with consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors fast becoming mainstream when making investment decisions. There is also growing understanding that exercising stewardship (using ownership rights to promote the long term success of investments) can lead to better financial outcomes. However, how a responsible investment strategy is implemented varies between investors, with differing aims and degrees of effectiveness.
How we can help
We can help you with a wide range of responsible investment activities, including:
- delivering general training or more tailored discussion on specific topics;
- exploring your responsible investment beliefs to inform decision-making;
- implementing a governance framework and business plan for managing climate-related risks and opportunities;
