ST. LOUIS, June 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its ongoing effort to foster sustainable investing, JAG Capital Management is pleased to announce that it has signed the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
Recognized as the world's leading proponent of responsible investment, the PRI is a global network of asset managers, owners and service providers working together to put responsible investment into practice. It works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment decisions and ownership practices.
In signing the principles, JAG will publicly report on the company's responsible investment activity through the PRI Reporting Framework. With a long history of working with investors focused on SRI (socially responsible investing) and ESG issues, JAG will continue to develop sustainable investing solutions that systematically and transparently incorporate ESG data into the investment process.
"As active investors, we focus intently on identifying and implementing factors that will add value to our clients' portfolios. Along with extensive academic research, our own investment experience has taught us that ESG factors can potentially impact the financial performance of individual companies in which we invest," explained Norm Conley, JAG CEO and CIO. "Becoming a signatory of PRI reinforces our commitment to provide the best investment solutions we can to our clients."
"JAG Capital Management's commitment to ESG issues makes them a perfect fit for the PRI," said managing director Fiona Reynolds. "They clearly appreciate the positive impact that ESG issues can have on the investment decision making process. We look forward to working with them in the coming years."
