Three things: Vatican, savvy execs, tipping points

Written by 
  1. Vatican Bank: to align with "teaching of the Holy Father"

    Last week, the Vatican announced sweeping reforms for the Vatican IOR (Bank), to address potential abuses, laundering and governance issues, while also indicating that reinvestments of equities will include clear socially responsible investment criteria. For people of faith the message is clear: “As the crisis of climate change is contributed to by human activity, we, Christians and Buddhists, must work together to confront it with an ecological spirituality..”

  2. Public company executives: in the dark on investors & ESG

    BCG’s/MIT Sloan Management Review :75% of senior investment executives say sustainability performance is material to their investments—nearly 50% won’t invest in weak performers. Why is it that only 60% of managers in publicly traded companies believe this? The disconnect explains why only 25% offer a compelling sustainability business case for savvy investors who say access to better ESG data has enabled better investment decisions. Savvy executives…a work in progress?

  3. Fund Managers: doubling 2016 impact investment pool to $12.4 B

    Fund managers—foundations, banks, pension funds, insurance—plan to raise $12.4 B this year for impact investing, versus $6.7B in 2016, almost doubling funds from family offices and foundations, according  to Global Impact Investing Network’s report released this week. It’s a drop in the big bucket, but what was that guy saying about tipping points?
