Identifying asset managers who want to create a positive impact on the world starts with what the manager believes is their role and responsibility in financial markets, according to NN Investment Partners (NNIP).

The firm’s principal for responsible investment, Adrie Heinsbroek, said being part of the Paris agreement and members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) meant that active engagement was very important in creating impact.

“Engagement is a very serious and effective measurement of looking and talking to companies and getting to know what the business model is about and how they can make a transition to a low carbon economy,” Heinsbroek said.
