The rise and rise of responsible investment

“It is clearly not enough for pension funds to just manage money for their members – that’s their job. But as investors we need to think more holistically and to also consider the world into which people retire.”

These are the words of Fiona Reynolds, CEO of Principles of Responsible Investment, who will be joining us in Australia next year for our new conference, TRANSFORM.

Fiona leads the London-based group of 1900-plus members which hold a collective AUD$100 trillion in assets under management. PRI’s members include investment giants BlackRock and Vanguard, Norway’s giant sovereign wealth fund, Wall Street’s Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley, as well as more than 130 Australian institutions including GBCA members Lendlease, AMP, Investa, Cbus and Australian Super.
