Mandate requirements and RFPs
PRI welcomes ICGN’s updated model mandate paper. We see it as an important contribution in helping asset owners to integrate environmental, social and governance issues into the core of the relationship with their investment managers – something that has been central to PRI’s work on the selection, appointment and monitoring of managers. Investment mandates provide a bedrock to this relationship so helping incorporate ESG into this foundation is an important step for asset owners with ambitions to develop a rigorous responsible investment policy. The report provides a set of practical tools and steps asset owners can use while negotiating and agreeing investment mandates but also during the duration of the mandate. We particularly welcome the draft clauses which owners, and their advisers, can use to strengthen mandates to ensure responsible investment ambitions are delivered. David Atkin CEO PRI
In this episode of the PRI podcast, the PRI’s director of Investment Practices, Toby Belsom, speaks with Marcel Jeucken from Sustfin and Daniel Ingram from Wilshire, both co-authors of PRI’s recent discussion paper about ESG in Investment Mandates.
This session will explore some of the challenges and opportunities for both asset owners and investment consultants to take the next step in incorporating outcomes into the design of mandates.
