    The investment management industry is today falling short of its duty to create long-term, sustainable wealth and must now put active stewardship at the centre of its activities, operations and purpose. This is the conclusion of a new paper from Hermes Investment Management.

    When assessing a company, investors spend a great deal of time examining factors such as its balance sheet, past performance and potential for future growth. However, many investors overlook a factor which is becoming increasingly important: social licence. Leon Kamhi, Head of Responsibility at Hermes Investment Management, discusses how a company needs to think about the impact it has on society as well as its bottom line when providing a service.

    Hermes Investment Management, the £30.8 billion manager, has today published the white paper, The low carbon opportunity – and the risks of missing out, which looks at how since the Paris Accord on climate change, it has become clear that the agreement has created numerous investment opportunities. Thanks to the Paris agreement’s focus on the need to decarbonise the economy, and subsequent initiatives such as the Financial Stability Board’s Taskforce on Climate-Related Disclosures (TCFD) and the statement by G20 countries that climate change represents a systemic risk to the financial system, the debate on the need for investors to act on climate change has clearly moved on.

    Saker Nusseibeh, Chief Executive: One of the main flaws of this entire process, indulged in by both sides, is to talk as if the effects of Brexit would be instantaneous or clear-cut once it is triggered. To restate the obvious, Brexit is a long, complicated and arduous set of negotiations, of which the commercial outcomes and their long-term effects on the economy are unlikely to be clear for many years to come. The most immediate effect of the Brexit vote (a 20% devaluation of our currency) was not about the outcome of Brexit per se, but merely a logical hike in the risk premium for UK assets while we wait to see whether the effects of whatever can be negotiated are good or bad for the country in the long term. Triggering Article 50 can therefore be likened to embarking in a raft or canoe down a very windy and dangerous set of rapids. All we know at present is that the journey is long, the path of the rapids will likely take unusual twists and turns, and that the ride will be turbulent. Whether we arrive at the end of the rapids in a wide tranquil lake, under glorious sunshine with strains of Elgar’s Nimrod playing in the background, or whether we sail over a waterfall with the sound of Colonel Bogey is anyone’s guess at present. However, I rather hope and pray it will be the former, and not the latter scenario that transpires.

    Saker Nusseibeh, Chief Executive: With the vote decided yesterday, we now have to move away from the rhetoric that typified this campaign. Prior to the referendum, we ran several scenarios on our strategies, and we are reasonably confident that they were well positioned for a Brexit vote in the short term. However, we are watching market moves very carefully to assess the degree of contagion, if any, to global markets.
