Arkadiko Partners is an innovative consultancy that works with investors to improve the quality of their stakeholder relationships, thereby strengthening their business models.
Our purpose is to address dysfunctions and failures of the financial system by assisting investors and their stakeholders in their evolution from short-term transactional to longer-term relational behaviour.
When working with investors we focus on the following core areas of their business:
1. Vision, purpose and positioning: we appraise vision and purpose in the context of developing best practice on sustainable investment. We engage with key staff, enabling them to come to a common view on sustainable investment. We assist in deciding on positioning in different asset classes, markets and sectors.
2. Investment strategies and relationships: we appraise current investment strategies and manager relationships and propose means of improving these, so they can better meet clients' needs in relation to sustainable investment, including the integration of longer-term factors. We also provide training on relevant issues as required.
3. Stewardship of investments: we ensure that clients are able to implement best in class stewardship efficiently across their clients’ investments, including where practicable the voting of shares and engagement with companies and regulators. We also consider opportunities to work collaboratively and recommend effective means of communicating stewardship activities to all stakeholders.
4. Stakeholder relationships and communication: we assist in understanding the developing requirements on sustainability, stewardship and responsible investing and in communicating success in meeting these in line with mission.
