Coronavirus: Aviva Investors asks where is the next surprise(s)

Tuesday, 07 April 2020

ICMIF members are invited to join our Supporting Member, Aviva Investors, for a short virtual roundtable discussion with the Chief Investment Officers of their equities, credit, real asset, and global macro teams as they answer questions surrounding the impact of the coronavirus. This webcast lasts 35 minutes.

Aviva Investors is an asset management company and is part of the Aviva group. It has global assets under management of over £457 Billion, including equities, fixed income, investment solutions, multi-asset, and property investments.

They became an ICMIF Supporting Member at the beginning of this year. Their application was approved in recognition of their environmental, social and governance work, which is integrated throughout their investment activities and strategies.

ICMIF CEO, Shaun Tarbuck says: “In July 2017 the Financial Stability Board’s Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) launched the final version of their recommendations on corporate disclosure, which Aviva Investors was involved in shaping.  The report sets out how businesses should disclose climate-related financial risks and opportunities within the context of their existing disclosure requirements.

“We look forward to working with Aviva Investors to deliver bespoke webinars exclusively for ICMIF members, including a special TCFD webinar during May,  followed by a responsible investing webinars sometime in June/July.”
