Manager selection

In their investment manager selection, asset owners are creating the link to real world outcomes through their investments. It therefore poses as one of the most important decisions in the investment process. To hear more about our work, contact us.

Technical guide


Asset owner technical guide - investment manager selection guide


The incorporation of ESG factors within the investment process has evolved from a nice-to-have to a necessity.


“Responsible investment should be at the core of the relationship between asset owners and investment managers. More and more clients want it, regulators demand it and academic and industry evidence supports it. This is the starting point that explains why our work on selection, appointment and monitoring (SAM) is so crucial. These guides are designed specifically for PRI’s 550+ asset owner signatories as well as the broader asset owner community. We hope they will support large and small asset owners and their advisers to incorporate ESG factors into how they relate to, co-operate with and challenge asset managers.” - Fiona Reynolds (PRI)
