Our rationale for reporting our RI implementation on a non-consolidated basis at this point in time is that JOHCM operates as a standalone boutique within Pendal Group. JOHCM is a signatory, and reports seperately, to the PRI. We note that Pendal Group and JOHCM have:
- separate boards
- separate policies
- different regulatory regimes
- JOHCM is an equity-only business while Pendal Group is a multi-asset investment manager
- different jurisdictions
Regnan, an ESG research, engagement and advisory firm of which Pendal assumed full ownership in February 2019, reports separately to the PRI under the service provider framework.
