We have trained a wide range of occupations within our organisation using the RI Academy, and will continue to do so. We see this as critical to embedding ESG integration within our business model and across our teams.
The RI Academy is the gold standard and unique in the marketplace. We expect it to gain in prominence in line with policy, market and industry developments.”

I’ve also found it helpful in understanding manager selection processes, and in further explaining the links between ESG issues and financial outcomes. It’s a great initiative – highly informative and helpful course.”
As a leading service provider to these markets, we are investing significantly in new products and services that help professional’s better address ESG risks and opportunities – this is an important element of our ongoing business model.
Our ability to execute on this strategy requires (in part) a market that is better educated as to what ESG issues are, how they are impacting value and why they will continue to be so important going forward. We believe the RI Academy addresses these needs and has an extremely important role to play in continuing to train global markets.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with this ground-breaking and market leading initiative.”
