At LGIM, we believe environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors – such as climate change, social inequality and executive pay – are financially material. So we see responsible investing as the incorporation of ESG considerations into investment decisions.

Responsible investing, in our view, is essential to mitigate risks, unearth investment opportunities and strengthen long-term returns for clients. It is also core to our approach: our very purpose at LGIM is to create a better future through responsible investing.

CIO Outlook: Time for healing

After contending with the terrible human and economic toll of a pandemic, as well as market volatility reminiscent of the financial crisis, investors could well be forgiven for wondering anxiously: what could 2021 possibly have in store for us?

Active ownership in an era of uncertainty

The pandemic disrupted our lives in 2020 in numerous and profound ways.

In our tenth annual Active Ownership report, we outline the decisive action we took on behalf of our clients during this challenging period across a range of environmental, social and governance issues.

We gave particular attention to the near-term dangers posed by COVID-19 and the longer-term threat of climate change, while doubling down on our progressive stance on income inequality, diversity and board independence.
