KBI gets top rating for responsible investing

Dublin-based asset management firm KBI Global Investors has been awarded the highest rating of A+ for its approach to responsible investment by a United Nations (UN) programme.

The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) is a UN-sponsored international network of investors which aims to put the UN’s six principles for responsible investment into practice.

KBI has been awarded an A+ across all three modules relevant to the firm’s approach to responsible investment and the management of equities: strategy and governance, listed equity incorporation and listed equity active ownership.

Eoin Fahy (pictured), KBI’s head of responsible investing, said: “We will be reviewing our practices to ensure we maintain our focus and we will look to build on our achievements in this area across both our global equity and natural resource strategies.”

Amundi-owned KBI Global Investors has total assets under management of over €9 billion and has offices in Dublin and Boston.

More than 1,750 investment firms from over 50 countries with combined assets of US$70 trillion (€59.3 trillion) have signed up to the UN’s investment principles since they were launched in 2006.
