As a major global actor in responsible investing, it is our duty to understand existing practices, promote the best ones, to suggest improvements and to evaluate progress. This is what we called engagement for influence, which is based on themes related to many sectors. Since 2013, we have met 83 companies and have discussed of 7 major themes with them.
Policymakers continue to implement comprehensive strategies to fostering sustainable finance. Most notably, in March 2018, the European Commission adopted its action plan resting on three pillars: (i) re-orienting capital flows towards sustainable investments; (ii) managing financial risks stemming from climate change; and (iii) fostering transparency and long-termism in financial activities.
Moving towards 2020, volatility, agility and liquidity are the keywords for multi-asset investors: Accommodative central banks, economic slowdown and geopolitical hotspots will continue to move the market, offering opportunities.
