The Learning Centre:
Educators Financial Group now offers more responsible investment options.
We’re pleased to announce that our investment clients now have an increased selection of responsible investment options to choose from.
On January 16, 2019, Foresters Asset Management, a valued Educators partner, signed the UN Principles of Responsible Investing (PRI), agreeing to make investment decisions that reflect those principles, and to ensure that research in their stocks and bonds incorporates Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations. Foresters has also become an Associate Member of the Responsible Investment Association, an association whose goal is to advance responsible investment in Canada.
“Responsible investing simply makes sense. It is aligned with the values of our investment team, the objectives of our stakeholders, and the more than 140 years of community-focus that is the heart of the ‘Foresters Financial Purpose’,” said Suzann Pennington, Chief Investment Officer, Foresters Asset Management Inc.
Foresters manages Educators’ popular Money Market and Monthly Income Funds. In response to the interest and needs of education members, Educators also offers responsible investing options in the Canadian Equities, Global Equities, as well as Canadian Fixed Income categories. We work hard to ensure the majority of the funds we offer fall within the UN’s six PRIs. For more information, visit educatorsfinancialgroup.ca/SRI-matters.
