Vigeo Eiris joins the UK’s PLSA

Vigeo Eiris has joined the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association – the lead membership organisation for UK pension funds

 

By joining the PLSA, Vigeo Eiris is better positioned to promote improved responsible investment practises within the UK pension fund industry, through expertise on topical ESG themes such as climate risk & energy transition, gender diversity, human rights and modern slavery, business ethics and tax transparency, as well as portfolio level analysis of product and behavioural contribution towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Paul Hewitt, Sales Director at Vigeo Eiris’ London office said: “We are delighted to be joining the PLSA at this very important time. The new Pensions Regulations Amendments are proof that there has never been a more important time to be supporting UK pension funds in understanding ESG in an investment context. We look forward to playing our role fully.”

The PLSA currently represents over 1,300 pension schemes and £1 trillion in assets: it works collaboratively with members, government, parliament and regulators to raise standards within the pensions industry, helps pension professionals improve schemes and advocates for regulation and policies on behalf of its membership and the industry.
