Overall responsibility for Ashmore’s responsible investment lies with the Board, which delegate day to day responsibility to an ESG committee chaired by the Chief Investment Officer. The ESG Committee meets formally on a quarterly basis, and includes representation from across the organisation, in particular the investment teams, operations and risk management. Ashmore’s integrated approach to ESG assessment, means that reviews of all ESG investment related activities are undertaken by the Investment Committee and the sub-Investment Committees, with ultimate responsibility lying with the Investment Committee Chair. The ESG Committee reviews and ensures the maintenance and integrity of all responsible investment processes and procedures. The Head of Sustainability and ESG Integration is expected to report to the Ashmore Board annually at a minimum.
