Sustainable Investment Policy

This policy documents the way in which the Delegated Investment Services team currently embeds the best of our SI research, risk management and idea generation.

Sustainable investment (“SI”), we believe, is central to successful long-term investment outcomes and a key part of Willis Towers Watson’s beliefs and investment approach.

SI describes long-term, finance-driven strategies that integrate environmental, social and corporate governance (“ESG”) factors, effective stewardship and real-world impact in investment arrangements. This reflects, in our view, good risk management and supports a robust investment industry. We believe that the principles underlying SI form the cornerstone of a successful long-term investment strategy and that SI considerations can materially improve risk and/or return for our portfolios. In addition, this topic is subject to significant regulatory and public scrutiny, as well as material reputational risk.

Our delegated solutions are in many ways complete reflections of our investment expertise – building portfolios that are designed to contain our best ideas in return generation and risk management. Therefore, delegated portfolios look to fully embed the best of our SI research, risk management and idea generation. This policy documents the way in which the Delegated Investment Services team currently does this in its portfolios, and is intended to cover our delegated offerings globally. This policy accompanies the overall investment business approach to sustainability and the firm-wide activities undertaken in this area.
