Insurers globally are facing increasing pressures and expectations around considering and integrating sustainability risks into their investment approaches and wider business models. Sustainability risks are especially important for the mutual sector given the typically longer term focus and desire to be purpose-driven rather than purely financial-driven organisations. However, there still remains material challenges around meeting these expectations across areas such as reporting, disclosure, climate stress testing and balancing sustainability integration with the continual need for higher investment returns.
This webinar, hosted by Andrew Epsom (Insurance Client Solutions Director) and Carlota Manas-Garcia (Head of Engagement) of Royal London Asset Management (RLAM); and Kaisie Rayner (Climate Change Lead) of Royal London Group provides: an update on the key global regulatory developments and other initiatives around sustainability; discusses the framework that RLAM has developed for integrating sustainability risks into different elements of the investment operating model; shares some quantitative and qualitative analysis around how the largest insurers globally have been evolving their sustainability approaches; and provides some practical examples of how the Royal London Group has been building out its sustainability framework.
