26 October 2018
“Merseyside Pension Fund has joined forces with global index, data and analytics provider, FTSE Russell, to develop a more sustainable and environmentally-equitable investment strategy.
The Fund has been reviewing its Responsible Investment policy in order to bring it into line with the goals set out in the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. It is now implementing the next part of its Climate Risk Strategy and moving towards ‘decarbonisation’, reducing its exposure to investments that are connected to climate change. The partnership with FTSE Russell will support the Fund along this path as it signs up to FTSE Russell’s new climate and multi-factor index, the FTSE All-World Climate Balanced Comprehensive Factor Index.
The new index will sit within FTSE Russell’s existing Smart Sustainability Index series and will provide investors with the ability to integrate key aspects of climate risk and opportunity alongside multi-factor or smart beta exposure.”
