LGPS Central and its partner funds are committed to responsible investment, and our approach is detailed in our Responsible Investment & Engagement Framework. We believe that the integration of responsible investment factors supports long-term risk-adjusted returns. We have made responsible investment a core part of our investment process in every asset class and in every investment mandate we hold. Our RI&E function has two objectives:
Primarily, to support investment objectives; Secondarily, to be an exemplar for RI within the financial services industry, promote collaboration, and raise standards across the marketplace.
We seek to attain these objectives through a three-pillar framework comprising Selection (of assets), Stewardship (of assets), and Transparency & Disclosure.
