Loomis Sayles joins UN’s responsible investment initiative

RELATED TOPICS​

Loomis, Sayles has signed up to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Initiative, a global network for investors who are committed to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations.


As a signatory to the PRI, Loomis Sayles volunteers to work towards a sustainable global financial system by adopting the PRI’s six aspirational Principles for Responsible Investment, which includes incorporating ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes; including ESG issues into ownership policies and practices; and reporting activities and progress towards implementing the six Principles.

“In 2013, Loomis Sayles senior management resolved to establish company-wide integration of ESG considerations into every team’s investment process. We did this independently and proactively, in order to ensure our business practices reflect the environmental, social and governance values that we, as an organisation, believe are essential to creating a viable and enduring global financial system,” says Kevin Charleston (pictured), chief executive officer of Loomis Sayles.

Loomis Sayles adopted a set of guidelines and principles that articulate the interaction of its principal goal of providing superior investment results for its clients, as well as the satisfaction of its fiduciary duty under ERISA, and the use of easily accessible high quality inputs on ESG matters by its investment professionals. These inputs are meant to be used by the investment professionals in the benefit and risk analyses that inform their investment recommendations and decisions.

“We are delighted to welcome Loomis Sayles to the PRI,” says PRI managing director, Fiona Reynolds. “By putting ESG matters at the heart of their business, they have already demonstrated their commitment to responsible investment. Joining the PRI further underscores that commitment.”
