ACSI is classified as a service provider. However, we view its work as collaborative engagement.

ACSI’s member funds are united by the beliefs that:

The short-term outlook of many participants in the investment system means that today’s market prices may not capture all of the risks and opportunities inherent in the value of companies.
Responsible exercise of ownership rights by long-term asset owners can assist in improving that value and consequent investment return outcomes for their members.
The financial system is not always set up in the best long term interests of beneficiaries.

ACSI’s mission is, therefore, to enhance sustainable long term value for the retirement savings that are entrusted to its Members as fiduciary institutional investors. ACSI achieves this by representing the collective rights and interests of Members through influencing companies, investors, government and opinion leaders.
