GIB UK becomes a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)09/18 Gulf International Bank (UK) Limited
London – September 26, 2018 – Gulf International Bank (UK) (GIB (UK)), the London-based international asset management firm, announces that it has become a signatory to the United Nations (UN)-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), effective September 24, 2018.
Founded in 2005, “PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment which seeks 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.”
“We are delighted to welcome Gulf International Bank (UK) (GIB) to the PRI,” said CEO Fiona Reynolds, and “praise their recognition of the importance of sustainable investing strategies. We look forward to working with them in the coming months.”
GIB (UK) is pleased to partner with the UN-supported PRI while continuing to pursue our goals of sustainable and socially responsible investment. “At GIB (UK) we believe that investment activity can no longer support economic activity that is unsustainable. Our commitment to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment is a testament to that belief” said Katherine Garrett-Cox, CBE, Chief Executive Officer of GIB (UK).
Consistent with our commitment to sustainability, GIB (UK) publishes insights on sustainable and responsible investing in order to raise understanding of ESG issues and the implications for the investment community.
