UK Stewardship Code 2020
Aberforth Partners has been a signatory of the Financial Reporting Council’s UK Stewardship Code 2020 since its inception in 2021.
PRI Assessment Report
Aberforth has been a PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) signatory since 2016 and our latest Assessment Report and Transparency Report are available to download from the Literature Library.
These reports are compiled by the United Nations-backed PRI on an annual basis to assess the sustainability credentials of firms in the investment industry, in order to promote its key objectives. It has six core principles, led by a commitment to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in the investment process and the use of active ownership to drive change.
For 2021 the reporting framework and assessment methodology was changed in order to better reflect the state of the responsible investment market as well as future advancements. The PRI does not provide an overall score for organisations.
If you have any queries regarding our Assessment Report, please Contact Us.
More information about the PRI can be found on their website at www.unpri.org.
