The shortlists for the world’s best asset owner and asset manager reporters in responsible investment has been published ahead of the landmark RI Awards gala dinner in London on the evening of June 6, where the winners will be announced.
The RI Awards, in partnership with Refine Research, were established in 2013 to create an aspirational benchmark for asset owners and asset managers by encouraging and recognizing best practice and transparency in responsible investment reporting. They combine a rigorous set of quantitative reporting performance indicators with a qualitative overlay provided by a high-level judging panel from the institutional investment field.
In 2017, the RI Award winners are being announced at the newly established RI Awards Dinner at the end of the first day of the RI Europe Conference (June 6) alongside a newly created set of RI Awards for Innovation & Industry Leadership on the 10th anniversary of RI Europe to further motivate and reward practitioners for their contribution to the industry by recognising best practice in the responsible investment, ESG and sustainable finance community globally.
