Responsible Investment and Stewardship

Pension funds’ long-term investment horizons fit well with the growing evidence that responsible investment approaches can lead to enhanced long-term risk-adjusted returns. Responsible investment is thus not just about pension funds’ investments ‘going greener’ but about achieving better outcomes for scheme members and beneficiaries.

The PLSA provides a wide range of resources to support our members responsible investment and stewardship activities, including practical advice for engaging with investee companies and asset managers; high level events and discussion papers on investment and stewardship issues; and responses to specific government policy consultations.
