19 May 2020 • Milano Finanza The most responsible asset managers according to the ShareAction ranking

ShareAction has recently released its ranking, updated up to March 2020, of the top 75 international institutional investors as relates to sustainability. The ranking takes into consideration a series of issues related to responsibility, ranging from green components to choices more related to governance practices. ShareAction assigns to each asset manager a rating ranging from AAA (i.e. gold standard) to E (i.e. lagging behind competitors).

No investors are currently listed as AAA or AA, but five asset managers top the list with a single A ranking, namely Robeco, BNP Paribas Asset Management, Legal & General Investment Management, Apg Asset Management and Aviva Investors. Italian Generali and Eurizon are listed in 33rd and 38th position respectively.

Morrow Sodali Director Fabio Bianconi commented in Milano Finanza: “this is one of the rankings which investors consider particularly for the method with which it is drawn up. It considers responsible investments, attention to human rights and a company’s attention to green issues." One of the interesting aspects," Bianconi added, “is that the sector’s giants are not present at the top of the ranking. From the report, it emerges that 55% of US companies are sensitive to environmental policies vs. 77% of European companies," explained Bianconi.
