ESG engagement and advocacy to improve risk-adjusted returns

Since 2001 Regnan has drawn on proprietary research and strong corporate and market relationships to identify and address risks relevant to long term investment portfolios.  We are in regular contact with Australian listed companies, to impel and encourage ESG improvement via constructive private dialogue.

Where performance would be aided by changes to market-wide regulation or norms we also advocate for these in regulatory processes and the broader public debate.

We act collectively for investors, but the program is driven by our own in-house risk research.  Objectives for the program are agreed by our clients ahead of time and we report regularly to clients against these.  Aside from accountability, this enables investors to exercise fiduciary oversight, monitor the risks within their portfolios, and inform any complementary ESG stewardship or investment activities they choose to undertake.
