Wednesday, April 03, 2019
Opalesque Industry Update - Alternative assets specialist Advisors & Partners today announced that it has become a signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, on the 18th of March 2019, joining more than 2,300 other institutions around the world that have publicly demonstrated their commitment to responsible investment.

The Principles for Responsible Investment is recognised as the leading global network for investors and asset owners from over 50 countries representing approximatively US$82 trillion in assets.

Vincent Tournant, Managing Partner of Advisors & Partners said: "We are delighted and extremely honored to be a new signatory and we see incorporation of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into investment decision-making practice as the step forward to sustainability. ESG investing is no more a concept but a reality. The vast majority of our investors are investing for the long-term and encourage alternative investment strategies with high standards of ESG performance. We are therefore committed to deliver solid investment solutions to our clients, with both attractive financial return and ESG factors to bring a positive change. This is totally aligned with A&P's philosophy. "

Philippe Teilhard de Chardin, CEO of Advisors & Partners said: "Providing investment solutions that promote and deliver inclusive prosperity whilst mitigating key risks to mankind has to become a state of mind, globally. UN-Principles for Responsible Investment initiative and framework are most useful. "

Fiona Reynolds, CEO of the PRI said, "It's a pleasure to welcome Advisors & Partners to the PRI. We are seeing more and more interest in ESG in the alternatives space as investors deepen their understanding of how looking at ESG issues can enhance their investment strategies. By joining the PRI, Advisors & Partners has demonstrated their commitment to sustainability issues."
