The UN PRI identified 20 asset managers who are setting industry standards by excelling at climate reporting. This comes just a matter of weeks after four managers were dropped from the UN PRI signatory list for failing to meet their standards, and in the wake of recently published research from Redington Consultancy, which concluded that managers are largely falling short in the application of their ESG policies.
With input from institutional investors, consultants, managers and industry organizations, eVestment recently launched a revamped ESG questionnaire to help managers better convey their overall ESG strategies and to provide data on how they follow through on those stated policies. This questionnaire provides consultants and investors significantly more data to screen and evaluate managers on their ESG practices than ever before.
The following asset managers are part of UN PRI’s leadership list this year, grouped according to their asset size:
- Neuberger Berman
- Legal & General Investment Group
- State Street Global Advisors
- Axa Investment Managers
- Manulife Investment Management
- APG Asset Management
- Payden & Rygel
- AMP Capital Investments
- Charter Hall Group
- The international business of Federated Hermes
- Australian Ethical Investment
- Bridges Fund Management
- ESG Portfolio Management
