Schroders Institutional Investor Study analyses the investment perspectives of 750 global institutional investors on the investment landscape, private assets and sustainability. The respondents represent a spectrum of institutions, including corporate and public pension plans, insurance companies, official institutions, private banks, endowments and foundations, collectively responsible for $26.8 trillion in assets. The research was carried out via an extensive global survey during February and March 2021.
At Schroders, we believe we have certain responsibilities as investors and as guardians of our clients’ assets. That’s why we seek to actively influence corporate behaviour to ensure the companies we invest in are managed in a sustainable way. This means not just looking at what our investments are doing, but how they’re doing day-to-day. This helps us better protect and enhance the value of our clients’ investments.
We work with companies to find out how prepared they are for the changing world
We engage with companies to influence behaviour and adapt for the changing world
We use our voice to make sure these changes are happening
Below is an example using the auto industry to help explain how active ownership works at Schroders.
Our investors regularly speak with the management of auto companies about what they’re doing to adapt to new environmental regulation and develop more electric vehicles.
The sustainability investment team has collaborated with other investors to take a closer look at how companies are re-skilling their workforce for the shift to electric vehicles.
Drawing on the specialist knowledge and insight gained through dialogue and engagement, we have chosen to vote against some boards who are slow to adapt to this changing environmental regulation.
