fe Awards 2005 - SRI Campaign of the year

F&C F&C is an industry leader in the area of socially responsible investment. As investment managers, they believe their obligations extend over and above delivering a competitive return, to ensuring that the companies in their portfolios pay serious attention to managing the business risks associated with environmental, social and governance issues.
  F&C has a long commitment to GSRI (governance and socially responsible investing), from the launch of the UK's first ethically screened investment fund in 1984 to the creation of a new generation of shareholder engagement products in reo - 'responsible engagement overlay.'
  F&C's reo was the first engagement-only product on the market in 1999. This trademarked process is used exclusively by F&C to take account of extra-financial issues in a constructive, credible and legally straightforward manner. reo aims to use the influence that F&C has through its share ownership and that of its clients to encourage investee companies to enhance their business performance by adopting better environmental, social and corporate governance practices.
