What is the PRI?

The United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) is the world's leading proponent of responsible investment. PRI works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.

PRI 6 Principles

  • We incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.

    Our financial analysts continue to be trained in the incorporation of ESG issues and where appropriate, we engage with management and participate in proxy voting. These responsibilities are incorporated into our investment process and are summarized in our Policy. Research notes include an ESG section and where available and appropriate, analyzes a company’s ESG performance.

  • We are active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.

    We vote at AGMs, provide transparency over our voting recommendations and decisions and track the impact of engagement, which is recorded in our in-house database.

  • We seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.

    Whenever possible, our analysts actively engage with companies to encourage greater transparency and discuss collaborative initiatives to improve disclosure standards.

  • We will promote acceptance and implementation of the principles within the investment industry.

    We will provide company research aimed at educating clients on socially responsible investments and collaborate with other investors to promote and develop ESG principles and practices.

  • We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the principles.

    We actively participate in industry networks such as the Institutional Shareholder Services (“ISS”) and the Korean Corporate Governance Service (“KCGS”) to effectively implement the PRI principles.

  • We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the principles.
