  • Asset Owners’ Role Driving Responsible Investment Through Manager Relationships Feb 3 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Fiona Reynolds, CEO, PRI
    Asset owners sit at the top of the investment chain. This group should feel empowered to work with asset managers on responding to their values, strategies and policies on responsible investment. Yet there seem to be blockages – data, fiduciary concerns and others – and the pressure is growing. Regulators and beneficiaries are increasingly requiring more active asset ownership. A panel of experts will discuss some of these issues and talk through where asset owners can work collaboratively with investment managers through the selection, appointment and monitoring process.

  • Investment Portfolio Risk for Insurance Companies - The CIO Perspective Dec 14 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The PRI and CFA Society Boston
    The insurance industry is in the business of risk; acting as risk managers, risk carriers and investors. Accordingly, the insurance industry is significantly exposed to risks posed by the increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, as well as the global transition towards a low-carbon economy. Adding the recent unprecedented pandemic for additional complexity and uncertainty, it is more important than ever before for managers of insurance company assets to factor relevant ESG risks into their investment portfolios.

    Please join the PRI and the CFA Society Boston on December 14th at 11 am ET for the second in a series of events exploring responsible investing and the US insurance industry. In this session, you will hear directly from investment officers of two major Insurance firms on the unique challenges they face, potential increased regulatory scrutiny and how they plan to continue managing resilient and sustainable insurance investment portfolios.

    Randy Brown, CIO, Sun Life & Head of Insurance Asset Management at SLC Management

  • Engaging on Whistleblowing: The Value for Investors Dec 9 2020 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    The PRI
    Effective whistleblowing mechanisms are a key feature of good governance and anti-corruption systems, as well as being reflective of a healthy corporate culture centred on trust and responsiveness. Investors can also use the presence or absence of these mechanisms to assess the efficiency of companies' risk management processes.

    This webinar will explore the relevance of whistleblowing for investors and launch the PRI engagement guidance on whistleblowing. The discussion will cover the investor perspective, implications of recent regulatory developments such as the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive, and include perspectives from a former whistleblower.

  • US Climate Policy in 2021: What Investors Need to Know Dec 2 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The PRI
    The likelihood of a sweeping U.S. climate policy being implemented has increased considerably in recent months. A wide range of proposals has been floated, and the Biden campaign itself laid out a comprehensive plan to tackle carbon emissions and climate resilience through a variety of statutory, regulatory and fiscal approaches. Nonetheless, should Biden win the presidency, the rubber will hit the road early next year as the federal government re-engages on an issue that has only grown more salient and pressing for institutional investors. What are the most likely areas of policy action in the U.S.? What do investors need to see in terms of frameworks, standards, and market signals across sectors of the real economy? How is the U.S. “Inevitable Policy Response” to climate change similar to – and divergent from – the approaches being taken in other major economies (EU, China, etc.)? Join the PRI for a webinar in which we will discuss these and other timely questions.

    Speakers include:
    Heather Slavkin Corzo, Head of US Policy, PRI
    Sharon Hendricks, Chair of the Board, CalSTRS and Board Member, PRI
