Principles, PRI, ESG

AssetMetrix is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment

Since January 2020, the Munich-based asset servicer AssetMetrix has been an official signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), thus making a direct contribution to a sustainable global financial system.

The initiative launched by the United Nations comprises six principles for responsible investment. As voluntary principles, they promote ESG-compliant investments and encourage investors to act sustainably.

As an asset servicer, AssetMetrix has no direct influence on the investment activities of its clients. Besides actively promoting the Principles for Reponsible Investment, AssetMetrix offers its clients an ESG module. On the basis of a scoring model, AssetMetrix evaluates the ESG commitment of a fund manager and highlights corresponding risks in the client portfolio.

As a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment, AssetMetrix is committed to ensuring that its own organisation is ESG-compliant and that processes within the company are transparent and continuously improved.

In its direct competitive environment, AssetMetrix is the first signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investments and thus sets an example of sustainability and commitment in addition to its innovative digital services and its ESG module.

About PRI

The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment.

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 and ownership decisions. The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole.

The PRI is truly independent. It encourages investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks, but does not operate for its own profit; it engages with global policymakers but is not associated with any government; it is supported by, but not part of, the United Nations.
