So many of our conversations with investors about stewardship are about two key problems: how can we judge the impact of your actions and how can we compare your work with your competitors? When so many are claiming to have ESG in their DNA, the ambitious update to the Stewardship Code goes a long way to putting an end to greenwashing. With new expectations about how investment and stewardship are integrated across asset classes, tougher hurdles to become a signatory and publicly available reporting from 2021, investors can expect a lot more transparency and comparability in the future. This week, we’re exploring what it means for you in detail and why it will become a lot harder, and a lot more meaningful, for an asset manager to be a signatory of the new code.
