MONTRÉAL, Nov. 15, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - LionGuard Capital Management Inc. ("LionGuard") is pleased to announce that, in the interests of abiding by the industry's best practices and ensuring that we fulfill our duty to all stakeholders, we have become a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
The PRI is recognized as the leading global network of asset owners, investment managers and service providers who are committed to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into their investment practices and ownership policies.
The Principles were developed by an international group of institutional investors reflecting the increasing relevance of ESG issues to investment practices. The process was convened by the United Nations Secretary-General.
"At LionGuard, we are very glad to incorporate forward thinking PRI Principles into our investment management operations and into our everyday business practices." stated Andrey Omelchak, President & Chief Investment Officer of LionGuard. "There is a large body of empirical evidence that indicates that ESG considerations positively contribute to long-term investment operations. It is also our duty as an organization to constantly reflect on how we can best align our activities with the broader interests of society at large."
"We are very pleased to welcome LionGuard to the PRI," said CEO Fiona Reynolds, "and commend their commitment to sustainable investment practices. We look forward to working with them in the coming months."
