Responsible investment has risen up the agenda for employers, trustees, pension committees and scheme members in recent years. We believe all long-term investors can benefit by integrating responsible investment considerations into their strategy.
How we can help
Responsible investment explicitly acknowledges the relevance to the investor of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, and of the long-term health and stability of the market as a whole. To ensure that there is a focus on financial outcomes, we consider responsible investment to have two dimensions:
We work with clients to help them understand the relevance of responsible investment issues at all stages of the investment process. We can work with you to help you understand how responsible investment can benefit your scheme and can be integrated into your existing investment arrangements. We can draw on the expertise of our specialist Responsible Investment team to develop an approach that works for you.
The forthcoming Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (“TCFD”) requirements will allow trustees to explore how their approach could be made more resilient and manage climate-related risks and opportunities in a way that improves member security.
Our guide is a useful tool for trustees, pension committees and other decision-makers. It sets out the steps you can follow to make sure you have a robust approach to managing climate risk for your scheme, and ensure you are able to report against TCFD requirements.
