SSF/PRI Asset Owner Workshop: Embedding Sustainability in Manager Selection & Monitoring
In this workshop, Swiss asset owners came together to share experiences around manager selection/monitoring and illustrate helpful tools. During the workshop the PRI outlined common practices and shared specific tools already available to asset owners, and practitioners presented how they implement systematic processes for manager selection/monitoring. Participants engaged in a dialogue about their own views and experiences and dove deeper into the topic with practitioners facing similar issues. The event was rounded out by an apero for further exchanges.

At this workshop for Swiss asset owners, jointly organised by SSF and the GIIN, Sean Gilbert, Chief Investor Network Officer, GIIN, presented different approaches of how asset owners can integrate an impact perspective into their investment policies. Michael Haene, Investment Strategist, PKZH, (Pensionskasse der Stadt Zürich) illustrated the approach of PKZH which builds on active engagement in a passive portfolio, complemented by direct investments into affordable housing and renewable energy projects as well as the purchase of green, social and sustainable bonds. Grégoire Hänni, Chief Investment Officer, CPEG (Caisse de prévoyance de l'Etat de Genève) presented an innovative public private partnership project with the European Investment Fund (EIF) in which a fund of fund for VC investments into climate solutions is set up.
