Schroders Solutions have confirmed their commitment to continue as an Adopter of the Impact Investing Principles for Pensions, following Schroders acquisition of River & Mercantile Solutions in February 2022..
Schroders Solutions says:
"As a fiduciary manager, the way we direct capital not only shapes the financial returns we can deliver for our pension scheme clients and their members but also the impact we have on the world. The way we invest is changing, driven by a fundamental shift in how companies are being viewed and valued. Where once we considered only risk and return, we now assess a third dimension – impact. We believe that considering these three pillars together can help us assess an asset’s real value and make better investment decisions for our clients. This is why we fully endorse the Impact Investing Principles for Pensions."
The Investment Consultant and Fiduciary Manager Adopters demonstrating their commitment to the Impact Investing Principles for Pensions include: Aon, Barnett Waddingham, bfinance, Cardano, Gordian Advice, Isio, Kempen, Redington, Schroders Solutions and XPS Investment.
What are the Impact Investing Principles?
The Principles provide an accessible introduction to impact investing and the concrete steps pension schemes can take to pursue an impact investing strategy, as well as helpful further resources. They were designed, in consultation with leading practitioners and with input from key stakeholders (pension funds, investment consultants and managers as well as member associations), to address the growing need for best practice guidelines on how to set, implement, review and measure an impact strategy. The Principles represent a dynamic template given that impact investing is an evolving area, and they will be updated based on what is learnt and developed from the Impact Investing Adopters Forum as well as other initiatives and partnerships.
Detailed information on the Principles and the work of the Impact Investing Institute can be found here.
