In 2016, Peter Coffin, president of Breckinridge, became a founding member of SASB's Investor Advisory Group (IAG). In addition, Ben Smelser, vice president, trader, at Breckinridge was also a member on the board. According to SASB, IAG members "recognize the need for consistent, comparable and reliable disclosure of material and decision-useful ESG information". IAG members will encourage companies to disclose ESG information, among other objectives. In addition, to highlight SASB's work, Breckinridge co-hosted a luncheon event in November 2016, in San Francisco for clients featuring Janine Guillot, SASB's Director of Capital Markets Policy and Outreach.
