202006 SL becomes signatory to UN PRI
As part of its ongoing initiative to foster and develop
responsible investment practices, SL investment Management ("SL")
has announced its decision to become a signatory to the United
Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
The PRI is recognised as the leading global network for
investors, asset managers and service providers who are committed
to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors
into their investment and decision making processes.
In order to move towards alignment with the PRI guidelines, SL
has committed to undertake a series of reviews over the coming
months. This includes the development of an internal code of
practice to outline SL's general approach to ESG issues, and how
this relates to individuals and our investment practices. This will
culminate in 2021 with SL's first submission to the PRI to satisfy
annual reporting requirements.
Managing Director, Robert Ireland said: "We have been a leading
voice in the Life Settlement space since 2002. Becoming a signatory
to the PRI builds upon our commitment to encourage responsible
investment practices within the Life Settlement industry - a
mission we've been driving forward with since becoming a founding
member of the European Life Settlement Association ("ELSA") in
2009, where focus is on the promotion of transparency and standards
within the Life Settlement market.
"Becoming a signatory of the PRI reinforces our commitment and
we are excited about integrating the philosophy of ESG investment
into our organisation."
"We are delighted to welcome SL Investment Management as a PRI
signatory"said Fiona Reynolds, CEO of PRI."We applaud their focus
on the promotion of transparency and standards in the Life
Settlement space, and look forward to working with the team on
their commitment to ESG investment."
