  • PRI Canada: Deep Dive into the Evolution of Listed Equity Active Ownership Recorded: Apr 20 2021 92 mins
    The PRI
    Inherent in the powerful role stewardship can play is the role of institutional investors in global capital markets and our economic system. They can propose and vote on shareholder resolutions, sign off remuneration plans, appoint board members, or even sit on boards themselves. They can use their position as provider of capital to ask for changes in the companies they’re invested in. They can request and support governments and regulators to set or change the rules of our economic system.
    In analysing the most recent Canadian PRI signatory reporting data, the signatory relations team has identified active ownership as an area of opportunity for 2021. While ESG integration is standard practice, active ownership practices vary widely. Join us to learn more about Active Ownership 2.0, hear from Canadian signatories on putting this into practice, and discuss what stewardship reporting looks like in the new reporting framework.

    Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) Level I requirements have now come into effect, but there is still a long way to go for full implementation and disclosure. As investors start embarking on this journey and get more familiar with the interpretation of the regulation as well as product disclosure depending on their categorisation, peer discussions are needed to make implementation and full disclosure at both entity and product level successful.

    Elise Attal (Head of EU Policy, PRI) will provide a brief overview of the SFDR regulation, followed by a panel of industry representatives who will debate three key aspects of the regulation:
    - Entity and product level disclosure
    - Principle adverse impact
    - Exploring how the different challenges across their asset classes can be tackled.

    This webinar is a great opportunity for signatories to understand developing practice in response to SFDR.
