BAML Board and BISL Executive Committee have been through education and direction on the messaging expected from them to staff and day-to-day oversight of colleagues in key internal teams with respect to RI Policy implementation.
BAML Board has received ad hoc updates on RI activities and progress as part of their Board meetings, presented by the CIO and/ or Head of Impact Investing.
Securing support for a new dedicated responsible investment staff member in 2018 has also been key.
There are also dozens of staff members who have partial responsibility for RI, together with those with leadership responsibilities. As per the Policy, we established the RI Forum to provide oversight and guidance to the RI effort. The RI Forum meets, at minimum, quarterly and includes key stakeholders from across the organisation.
