The FIDUCIARY DUTY IN THE 21ST CENTURY project has three main components:

  • In each of the eight countries, publish and implement roadmaps on the policy changes required to achieve full integration of ESG issues in investment processes and practices. This work-stream will engage senior policymakers, regulators and investors through a series of roundtables.
  • Extend the research into fiduciary duties – and, more broadly, investor duties – to five major Asian markets, China, India, Korea, Malaysia and Singapore, with recommendations for investors, financial intermediaries and policymakers to clarify the duties investors owe to their beneficiaries on ESG issues.
  • Working with investors, governments and intergovernmental organisations, to develop and publish an international statement on fiduciary duty, which includes the requirement to integrate ESG issues into investment processes and practices.
