RLAM welcomes Investment Association's consultation


Mike Fox, Head of Sustainable Investments 

25 January 2019 

We whole-heartedly welcome the initiative launched today by the Investment Association. Sustainable and responsible investing is a rapidly growing role for asset managers to adopt in an effort to support positive social and economic development. This, coupled with delivering on the needs of savers and investors, is becoming increasingly important. We therefore believe that this initiative will be a significant step in providing clarity and consistency to a fast evolving part of the investment industry.
 
At Royal London Asset Management, we have an industry-leading range of sustainable funds and a responsible investment approach which is embedded across our business. We are committed to playing a leading role in this area.
