At Insight, we believe responsible investment means acknowledging the significance of environmental, social and governance risks, and ensuring our portfolios reflect these factors.

Our responsible investment activities are overseen by the ESG Risk Working Group, which reports twice a year to the Business Management Group, a senior management group of Insight executives and employees.

The ESG Risk Working Group sets, reviews and monitors the implementation of responsible investment. It focuses particularly on:

  • Identification of new/emerging ESG issues
  • Prioritising issues that require further action
  • Ensuring that agreed actions are implemented
