The Firm has established a Responsible Investing Solutions Group (RISG) to govern and manage responsible investment research and processes within our organization. The Group’s activities include researching and developing ESG investment strategies, keeping abreast of the regulatory landscape and evolving research on ESG investing, and serving as subject matter experts on responsible investing in discussions with clients and investment consultants. The Group meets on a regular basis and the objectives for the Firm's responsible investment activities are continuously evolving based on client feedback and the changing ESG landscape. The RI Solutions Group is comprised of representatives from the Portfolio Management, Research, Legal and Relationship Management teams and we feel that diverse representation from across the business allows us to think about ESG more holistically. The RI Solutions Group is responsible for continuing ESG research and for developing the Firm’s responsible investment offerings in coordination with the Research and Portfolio Management teams. The Investment Committee sets the Firm's broader research agenda on an annual basis and works directly with the Responsible Investing Solutions Group and the whole Research team to set the RI specific research goals for the year. These projects will be managed by the Research Directors and Chief Investment Officer with input from Portfolio Managers and the RI Solutions Group.
