Stuart O’Brien explains trustee investment duties on ESG in Pensions Expert podcast
Partner, Stuart O’Brien, discusses what pension schemes need to do in response to recent developments in environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks, including climate change.
In a podcast for the FT Pensions Expert, O’Brien explains the trustee duties imposed by the new regulations coming into force in 2019, requiring schemes to publish more detailed statements of investment principles (SIPs). He also comments on the danger of conflating ethical matters with ESG considerations and explains how schemes can respond to member and pressure group queries.
