For the third year in a row, the Responsible Asset Allocator Initiative (RAAI) has placed AIMCo among the world’s top 30 most responsible asset allocators.
The RAAI index is one of the most comprehensive rating systems in the world that monitors and measures the progress of global sovereign wealth and pension funds in deploying their capital responsibly and sustainably. A minimum score of 96% was required to be named to the RAAI Leaders Group. AIMCo was one of 16 asset allocators to achieve a perfect score of 100%.
For the 2021 Leaders List, the RAAI expanded the scope of its coverage, evaluating 634 asset allocators and rating 251 institutions, with assets of $26 trillion, up from 471 and 197 institutions respectively, in 2019. Asset allocators are assessed across 10 core principles: disclosure, intention, clarity, integration, implementation, commitment, accountability, partnership, standards and development. The number of rating criteria increased from 20 to 30, raising the bar to be selected for the Leaders List. The list includes representatives from 15 countries and five geographic regions, including Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and North America.
On behalf of clients, AIMCo is committed to integrating ESG considerations into the investment process, in order to optimize risk-adjusted returns over the long-term and position the portfolio for future-focused, sustainable growth.
