The PRI is funded primarily via the annual membership fee payable by all signatories.

Additional funding comes from grants from governments, foundations and international organisations. Corporate sponsorship and in-kind support is sought for standalone events and projects such as the annual PRI in Person conference and major publications. (For more information on funding that the PRI receives from partnering with other organisations, see the Partnerships section.)

The PRI receives no funding from the United Nations.

Full financial details are available in each year’s Annual Report

Annual fee

The annual signatory fee is payable each April and is scaled according to each signatory’s category.

The PRI Board has approved a moderate increase in signatory fees for 2023. We are simultaneously taking active steps to reduce our own operating costs, but this increase is necessitated by inflationary pressures across our key markets.

Fees are calculated based on signatories’ latest AUM (for asset owners and investment managers) or number of investment staff (for service providers). For new signatories that have not reported yet, their fees will be calculated based on the figures provided when they signed up as a PRI signatory.

The PRI is a not for profit organisation and signatory fees and other revenue are spent on delivering value to our diverse signatories, through opportunities for learning and development, sharing best practices, collaborative engagement and driving responsible investment.

Discounts 

Asset owners headquartered in a country classified by the IMF as an emerging market or developing economy are entitled to apply for a fee discount. Please refer to the IMF’s list of eligible countries.

The PRI will bill service providers based on only their investment staff, where that service provider has distinct divisions that provide distinct services. If one of those divisions provides a service that is not relevant to investors (and therefore the principles), this division will be excluded from the fee calculation.

The PRI previously offered discounts for joint UNEP FI-PRI members and reciprocal fee arrangements. These were discontinued in 2017.
