These principles set out the ICGN’s view of current best practices in terms of the responsibilities of institutional investors both in relation to their internal governance and with regard to their external role as investors in companies and other assets.
ICGN Statement of Principles for Institutional Investor Responsibilities
Both help to ensure that institutions deliver fully and effectively their obligations to their bene ciaries and clients, and thereby also help support the positive economic performance of companies and the broad markets in which they invest, helping foster sustainable growth and job creation. Responsible investment requires high standards of transparency, probity and care on the part of institutions, which may be met by adhering to these Principles. The standards set out here are intended to apply, with appropriate exibility, to all investment styles and approaches. They are aspirational standards that the ICGN encourages member organisations and their peers to seek to adhere to as appropriate to their circumstances and over time.
