FINANCE NEWS: Schroders predicts more responsible investment abroad

UK institutional investors, including charities, may soon be extending their investment strategies internationally to encourage sustainability in other parts of the world, according to an internal report for fund managers Schroders.

The report, compiled by Schroders' socially-responsible investment analyst Justin Alexander, said that recent legislation in countries such as France and Germany to force companies to report on the social and environment impact of their activities will increase engagement by socially responsible UK investors in European companies.

Asian companies will move more slowly towards similar levels of disclosure, but could also benefit from active engagement from Western investors with experience of developing social and environmental best practice, claimed the report.
