As a firm, we take responsible investment seriously. In our view, it is as an essential part of managing risk and deciding whether an investment is fair value. We were a founding signatory to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)in 2006 and have been improving the integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in our research processes for more than a decade. Where we identify material ESG risks, we also seek to engage to better understand the issues. In 2020, Insight was awarded A+ ratings by the PRI for strategy and governance, and for the integration of responsible investment-related issues for categories relevant to Insight. Our Putting Principles into Practice: 2016 responsible investment report, won best responsible investment report at the 2017 Responsible Investor Awards.
