¼ of the world’s financial capital now signed up to responsible investing

According to new figures, over a ¼ of the world’s capital assets under fund management are now signed on to responsible investing, through being signatories of the UNPRI (the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment). Happening in less than 5 years, this is an unprecedented movement in the history of world finance.

Is a jobs boom in this profession now likely?

It appears so, with the UNPRI looking to recruit a new team of senior managers for its London office. (If you are thinking of applying, see the video of your potential boss, below).

A new profession is emerging in the responsible investment space. How skilled and principled this profession is will determine the actual impacts of this movement on the people working or living near the businesses invested in.
