Investment Leaders Group

The Investment Leaders Group (ILG) is a global network of pension funds, insurers and asset managers, with over US $12 trillion under management and advice, committed to advancing the practice of responsible investment. It is a voluntary initiative, driven by its members, facilitated by the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), and supported by academics in the University of Cambridge.

The ILG´s vision is an investment chain in which economic, social and environmental sustainability are delivered as an outcome of the investment process as investors go about generating robust, long-term returns.

 

Programme

Measuring investment impacts

The Cambridge Impact Framework offers a set of impact metrics that translate the SDGs into measurable indicators that can be calculable, easily understood and implementable by members.

Promoting long-termism

This research project provides a checklist allowing asset owners and retail clients to assess a fund's long-term orientation as well as enable asset managers to review their own performance.

Understanding consumer preferences and behaviours

The ILG is working with Cambridge academics from the Department of Psychology to develop a Virtual Investment Experiment (VIE), which tests investor preferences as to how they trade off financial performance against impact.

Climate risk and resilience

Research in this area aims to empower investors to understand how shifts in market sentiment induced by awareness of future climate risks could affect global financial markets in the short term.
