Asset owner DDQs

The PRI has produced responsible investment due diligence questionnaires covering a range of asset classes.

The DDQs are tools which help asset owners assess investment managers’ approaches to responsible investment. The questions they contain have been developed in collaboration with asset owner and investment manager signatories. All DDQs are updated periodically to ensure they reflect evolving responsible investment standards and norms. Any comments or questions regarding the DDQs can be sent to assetowners@unpri.org.
