The PRI is the world's leading proponent of responsible investment, with over 7,000 signatories from more than 135 countries. The organization encourages its signatories to incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into investment, due diligence and portfolio management to create a more sustainable environment for global financial and investment activities.

We are pleased to join the PRI, furthering our commitment to the application of the principles and to conducting our business and investments in a socially responsible and ethical manner.”
In becoming a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment, TIG will further extend its commitment related to ESG. The firm recognizes the responsibility to address these issues that can positively affect the performance of its investments. The six key Principles that TIG is committing to are:
Incorporating ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
Being active owners and incorporating ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
Seeking appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
Promoting acceptance and implementation of the principles within the investment industry.
Working together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the principles.
Reporting on our activities and progress towards implementing the principles.
“We are pleased to welcome Transwestern Investment Group as a signatory to the PRI,” said David Atkin, CEO at the Principles for Responsible Investment. “Responsible investment factors have significant relevance for the real estate sector, with a view to long-term risk management and value creation, and their importance is becoming increasingly understood and acted upon by the industry. We look forward to working with Transwestern Investment Group on these important issues as the sector continues to evolve.”
