The Irish Life Investment Managers (ILIM) believe in building a more sustainable future for us all. Investing money in a responsible way helps make that a reality and is more likely to create and preserve long-term investment growth. ILIM invest in companies that manage their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks better and believe you can grow your investment fund and do good at the same time.

ILIM have now published the "Responsible Investment Review for 2020.

Where the recent transposition of the legislation gave some element of assurance after such a long period of anticipation, the Pension Authority’s release gave further clarity on 13 May 2021- in particular around the timelines for compliance - and the sense that there is definite forward momentum.  

A long build up, like the one we’ve seen with IORP II can lead to widespread uncertainty, which can impact the ability of plan sponsors and trustees to fully prepare and plan for the significant change that is coming.

After the Pension’s Authority release late last week plan sponsors and trustees have a much more tangible timeline to work towards now and, though there are still some key elements that remain somewhat unclear, what is very clear and certain is this: the time to start preparing for the changes ahead is now.

Two recent pieces of legislation have been enacted which increase the onus on providers and Trustees in disclosing how they have regard to RI practices when managing their investments. These are

  • the Shareholders Rights Directive (SRDII), and
  • the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulations (SFDR).

Irish Life are adopting a principles-based approach to these to ensure that we meet the requirements involved. As required under SFDR we have updated our website with an explanation of how Irish Life approaches sustainability risks in investment decisions relating to savings, investment and pension products.
