Mellon Capital becomes signatory to UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment

RELATED TOPICS​

Mellon Capital Management, a multi-asset manager for BNY Mellon, has become a signatory to the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), underlining its commitment to incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into its investment processes.

 
Mellon Capital manages USD30.4bn in socially responsible investing (SRI) and ESG mandates on behalf of its clients.
 
"Our clients and colleagues are interested in how ESG issues impact our world and the economy," says Gabriela Parcella, chief executive officer of Mellon Capital. "Becoming a signatory to UN PRI signals our commitment to remain focused on these long term risks."
 
The Principles for Responsible Investment are designed to focus on long-term outcomes instead of short-term gains for business, with the intention of improving the balance between society’s present needs and the shrinking natural resources that will support future generations.
 
"Understanding and anticipating risks is essential to making prudent investment decisions," says Parcella. "We believe considering ESG issues enhances our ability to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our clients."
 
"Including Mellon Capital, there are now six BNY Mellon investment boutiques which have become UN PRI signatories," says Mitchell E Harris, president of BNY Mellon Investment Management. "ESG factors may influence long-term returns. They no longer are a niche studied only by sustainable investment specialists."
 
In addition to Mellon Capital Management, Standish Mellon Asset Management, Siguler-Guff, Newton Investment Management, Insight Investment, and Meriten Investment Management represent the BNY Mellon investment boutiques that are also UN PRI signatories.
