LONDON and ZURICH, Sept. 30, 2019 /CNW/ -- As a signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), ThomasLloyd participated in an assessment of its investment activities according to UN PRI for the first time. The annual Assessment Report describes in detail the activities and performance of participating companies in terms of responsible investment. The assessment of ThomasLloyd covers two categories, "Strategy & Governance" and the investment focus, "Infrastructure", which are compared with the median for the sector.
The leading independent global proponent of responsible investing achieved an excellent score in the Assessment Report: from a standing start ThomasLloyd received 29 out of 30 points, resulting in the top mark of A+ for the infrastructure sector (on a declining scale from A+, A, B, C, D, E), and 21 out of a possible 30 points in the category, "Strategy & Governance," which corresponds to a B. The full report is available free of charge from ThomasLloyd on request.
Nick Parsons, Head of Research & Strategy at ThomasLloyd, underlines: "The good first score from UN PRI makes us proud because it highlights our place in the exclusive circle of PRI signatories and in our core competence, infrastructure, we rank among the best in the world. Furthermore, the assessment of our responsible investing acts as an incentive for us to keep improving our score point by point next year."
The UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI) were established in 2006 at the initiative of investors in partnership with the finance initiative of the UN environmental programme (UNEP) and the UN Global Compact. The initiative encourages investors to use responsible investments to boost returns and better manage risks. More than 1,400 signatories from 50 countries are now members of the initiative, managing investment capital of more than 59 trillion US dollars. For more information, visit: www.unpri.org
