Charities publicise RFP for impact-focused ESG mandate

first_imgThree charities have publicised a request for proposals from asset managers to run a £32m (€37m) investment mandate with maximum positive social and environmental impact.In a press release, the charities – Blagrave Trust, Friends Provident Foundation, and Joffe Charitable Trust – said their key instruction to managers was to “’impress us’ on environmental and social impact” and that they would be asking short-listed candidates to present their proposal to an auditorium of mission-led investors. The press release referred to an ‘ESG investing Olympics’.Colin Baines, investment engagement manager at Friends Provident Foundation, said: “We wish to send a market signal that asset owners are demanding higher standards of impact and ESG investment. Asset managers will recognise that the standards expected by mission-led investors like us today often become the market norms of tomorrow.”Growing demand from asset owners to have a purpose beyond financial return with their investments was being reflected in a growth in funds labelled as impact, sustainable, responsible, green or ESG, he added, but “the quality of these funds varies greatly with marketing claims not always aligned with investment practice”. The charities said the request for proposals was being advertised publicly as part of their decision to take a more transparent approach to asset manager selection in a bid to “bring investment management ‘out of the shadows’”.The charities said they planned to feature short-listed managers as best-in-sector in a report to signal to the market what emerging best practice and asset owner expectations look like.They indicated being agnostic as to the asset class, impact theme, and type of manager, with proposals being sought from “boutique impact funds intentionally seeking out start-ups with solutions to large ESG funds moving markets and transnational companies via their stewardship”.Alex Jacobs, director of the Joffe Charitable Trust, said: “We will be looking for intentional social and environmental impact, high standards of ESG integration covering exclusion, engagement and its escalation, voting record, and in-house expertise, plus impact reporting.“We know there will be trade-offs between different approaches, and we look forward to seeing which perform well.”Guiding principles included that the investment strategy be scalable to test the hypothesis that other impact-oriented pools of capital could come on board. Some short-term liquidity would be required, with an option for substantial – specified as more than 50% – liquidity within 12 years.Asset managers have to submit applications by 7 February, which should include an explanation about how important impact or ESG investment is to their business and they hoped to shape the broader investment market.last_img read more

Pardew: We’ve a lot to worry about

first_img Owner Mike Ashley will deliver his verdict when the pair meet at the end of the season for their usual debrief, but Pardew’s critics in the stands are growing in both number and volume, and anything but a victory this weekend would simply add fuel to the fire. The manager admitted: “It’s a massive game for us. “If Cardiff fans think, ‘Newcastle are in the top 10 – what have they got to worry about?’ – well, we have got a lot to worry about after the recent run. “It’s as big a game for us as it is for them.” Pardew has been in charge at St James’ Park since December 2010, fulfilling his initial mission to keep the newly-promoted club in the Premier League following Chris Hughton’s untimely departure and then guiding them to a fifth-placed finish and Europe just 12 months later. The reward for him and his staff was a series of bumper eight-year contracts, although the club’s fortunes have dipped somewhat since. Last year’s unseemly scramble for safety did little to placate supporters dismayed at a summer transfer window during which only one senior player was signed. A January spending spree which addressed that failing was not built upon at the end of the campaign, when the club did not make a single permanent acquisition despite the appointment of Joe Kinnear as director of football. However, that disquiet was a distant memory as the Magpies banked 33 points by Boxing Day last year and looked poised for an assault on the top four, at least until Ashley decided to accept Paris St Germain’s offer for key midfielder Yohan Cabaye, and then not to re-invest any of the proceeds in a replacement. As the club’s only readily available figurehead, Pardew has had to bear the brunt of the criticism which has followed, although any sympathy was diluted by his head-butt on Hull midfielder David Meyler. Ashley chose not to sack him for that misdemeanour and there is no suggestion that he is ready to wield the axe now despite the club’s current on-field plight. However, even a win over Cardiff this weekend could prove insufficient to stem the tide of popular revolt, with fans groups having mooted a planned walk-out during the game. Meanwhile, Newcastle will head for New Zealand as part of their preparations for the new season when they, West Ham, Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC take part in the Football United Tour tournament in July. The 52-year-old will send his side into Saturday’s Barclays Premier League battle against relegation-threatened Cardiff on Tyneside under intense pressure from outside the club, if not necessarily from inside. Fans once again called for his head during and after Monday night’s tame 3-0 surrender at Arsenal, their sixth successive league defeat. Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admits he is a worried man as he approaches a key game in his reign at St James’ Park. Press Associationlast_img read more
