Dinner dialogue: the future of ESG client reporting in 3 courses

Senior leaders from the European asset owner and asset manager communities joined Schroders and Responsible Investor for a high-level dinner discussion on the future of ESG reporting from fund managers to clients, against the backdrop of a rapidly evolving regulatory landscape (COP21, TFCD, IORP Directive, Stewardship/Shareholder Rights/Non-Financial Reporting Directive, etc.)

Discussion questions included:

  • What is the level of investor awareness of current ESG reporting initiatives/regulations?
  • Why are these regulations being introduced, and how will they have to be adopted?
  • What do asset owners want to see?
  • Are fund managers transparent enough about how they integrate ESG into investment strategies?
  • What pressure are they/will they be under to do so?

RI INSIGHT: Switzerland 2015
Sep 16, 2015

FREE Download (PDF)

Sustainable and responsible investment in Switzerland is as enigmatic as the mountains that dominate the land. It has only six asset owners signed up to the PRI compared to 42 asset manager signatories and 14 service suppliers. But dig below the surface and there is much more happening amongst the country’s asset owners than the numbers reveal. This RI INSIGHT, published in association with RobecoSAM, includes interviews with ASIP, RobecoSAM, CAP Prévoyance, Nest Sammelstiftung, UBS, Ethos, Suva and Swiss Sustainable Finance (SSF). It’s a fascinating market. This RI Insight report goes under the mountain to look at why more is happening in Switzerland in responsible investment than you might think.

RI MSCI Roundtable 2015
Jun 16, 2015

FREE Download (PDF)

The third annual RI MSCI Roundtable was moderated by Responsible Investor and hosted by MSCI, with participants from: Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management. MN, Royal London Asset Management, RPMI Railpen and USS Investment Management. This fascinating round-table discussion is titled ‘GSE’, reversing the usual order of ESG – Environmental, Social and Governance factors. This is because for institutional investors, especially equity holders, corporate governance is the legal framework for ensuring their shareholder rights and views are respected and heard. It also tends to be the main channel (voting and engagement) through which environmental and social issues are broached. We believe the quality and breadth of this round table discussion reflects the significance of this evolution. We hope you find this report stimulating and thought provoking.

Northern Trust Asset Management: The changing shape of environmental, social and governance (ESG) “regulation” is among the main drivers of ESG investing growth. To better understand the issues around this topic, our latest paper examines the status of global efforts to pass legislation and implement codes of practice and self-regulation. What do these efforts mean for investors as they consider incorporating ESG criteria into their portfolios? And will these efforts encourage investors to look at ESG when they otherwise might not?

RI INSIGHT: Private Equity 2015

There’s no doubt that Limited Partners (LPs) demands to the General Partners (GPs) to integrate ESG factors into portfolio analysis and decision-making have changed the way GPs are having to think about their portfolio companies, and reporting on their activities. In RI’s Asset Owner Benchmarking survey (to be published April 2015), 66% of the LP respondents say they will undertake a private equity request for proposal / manager search in the next two years with 79% regarding ESG as a differentiator when hiring private equity managers. Which makes this RI INSIGHT: Private Equity 2015 required reading. Click here to download the full report.
