Socially Responsible Investing Quickly Explained
When investing in a company, you need to make sure they are doing the right thing and that they are profitable. Companies that do the wrong thing expose themselves to massive risks that could have a huge financial impact in the future. I've attached my notes on SRI below: Involves: Environmental pollution Public concerns (Genetically modified food) Corporate Governance. (Is chairman and CEO same person) Focus of regulatory framework. (greenhouse gas emissions Labour issues. (Safe working environment) SRI is any issue that may not have a short term impact but could have significant negative or positive impacts for asset owners in the long term. SRI has a financial impact. Its not a Moral Judgement OR an Investment Judgement. It includes both. It is the right thing to do and its in the interest of the investor Includes: Ethical business practices Transparent reporting Community support Black economic empowerment Methods: Active asset management with regards to voting in board rooms Enforcing good corporate governance Aim for investments that have a positive contribution to society Also focus on unlisted socially responsible opportunities (Educational Entrepreneurs) Approaches: Passive screening. Invest in an ESG benchmark index Positive screening. Establish a criteria before an investment is included in a portfolio Negative screening. Exclude companies on the basis of ESG performance. UN Global Compact: Human Rights International Labour Organisation (no child labour) Environmental issues No to bribery and corruption Trustees feel SRI implementation is too difficult and that it goes against their mandate of sole responsibility of maximising investment returns. Some critics say that negative screening is not consistent with Modern Portfolio Theory as it limits the investment universe thus lowering diversification, but benefits of diversification are marginal and fall rapidly. Most important issue is if negative screening causes a big deviation from benchmark, if a tobacco company like BAT is one of the biggest in the index. Others believe business should stick to doing business. Trustees must: instruct managers to take SRI into account instruct managers to engage with firms in which they invest Independent non-executive directors may not be considered independent the longer they hold their position Factors pushing ESG into the mainstream Nexus between ESG issues and financial performance Stakeholder activism Reputational concerns Consumer pressure and public opinion Pressure from research bodies Pressure from insurance industries Introduction of corporate environmental reporting obligations Rise of the global company Adoption of investment guidelines by the World Bank Growing corporate Transparency IT revolution Social Media pressure Regulation mandating disclosure of ESG investment policies Traits Discipline Transparency Independence Accountability Appropriate behaviour Fairness Social responsibility Good stakeholder relations Communication and disclosure Effective leadership Financial and economic performance Respect for shareholder’s rights Meeting stakeholder obligations Embracing challenges of their business environment

The Rise of Responsible Investment
James Gifford says the global financial crisis has caused more firms to consider the impact of environmental, social and corporate governance factors on the long-term sustainability of a company. The Executive Director of the U.N. Principles for Responsible Investment says that only using financial metrics to gauge future value is "a bygone paradigm." Short-term investment strategies must be addressed by leaders coming together and saying, "Something is wrong here."

Social Finance and Principles for Responsible Investing  at University of Ottawa
The boundaries between public and private are blurring with the responsibilities of social development no longer in the hands of government. It is inappropriate for the private sector to safely hide behind Milton Friedman's assertion that "... the only social responsibility of business is to increase its profits ..."[1] The students of University of Ottawa are interested in alternative investment options that take into account social and ethical considerations. In the last several decades social finance and ethical investment have become increasingly important and sought after investment methods. For example portfolios with social investment started as early as 1984, which according to the Social Investment Forum worth around 40 billion. A decade later this number grew to $639 billion, while in 2001 it was $2.3 trillion.[2] Around the world funds have been organized in national settings like the Pay for Success, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation in the United States. ________________________ [1]Milton Friedman, Greed is Good, the Social Responsibility of Business is to Increase its Profits, NEW YORK TIMES, 13 September 1970 [2]Florini, A., 2003.

The Evolution of SEC Disclosure: The Materiality of ESG Information and its Use by Investors
ESG integration into investment decision-making has now hit an inflection point, with signatories of the Principles for Responsible Investment initiative reaching a combined AUM total of $59 trillion. With the dramatic rise in investor interest in incorporating ESG factors into investment decision-making, companies are sitting up and taking notice. And yet, analysts often lack access to comparable, standardized information on the sustainability factors that impact value. While there has been a notable increase in the volume of sustainability reporting over the past several years, there is a strong push among investors for companies to disclose material ESG information in their SEC filings.
