Investment Programme
of the Year
Insight Investment
Leadership in Investment Integration
It was Insight Investment’s integration of socially responsible factors across all its equity and bond investments that swayed the judges in this closely-run category. As the campaign suggests, Insight has taken the decision to run all client assets according to responsible investment principles. This approach has been in place for some time, but over the past year, Insight has strengthened its emphasis on integrating corporate governance and corporate responsibility issues with investments. An example of this was its focus on the implications of climate change for European electricity utilities for the 2008 to 2012 Kyoto Protocol compliance. Topical issues like health and obesity also impressed the judges.
