Deutsche Asset Management (Deutsche AM) was named “Responsible Investor of the Year” by Insurance Asset Risk in their 2018 awards. Insurance Asset Risk is a UK-based publication covering various issues affecting the insurance asset management industry.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious award,” said Roelfien Kuijpers, Head of Responsible Investments and Strategic Relationships. “At Deutsche AM, responsible investment is part of our fiduciary duty and we strive to be the partner of choice for our clients by implementing their investment beliefs and stewardship responsibilities, alongside developing innovative investment solutions.”
Deutsche AM is committed to enabling a sustainable future by incorporating ESG into its entire investment processes. To support this, Deutsche AM developed the ESG Engine in direct response to growing data and analytic expertise in the sphere of responsible investing. As a proprietary software system that combines the different perspectives and approaches of seven leading external data providers, it has become the centerpiece of our commitment to integrating ESG into the investment process and Deutsche AM’s active and passive portfolios.
In addition, 2017 marked 20 years since Deutsche AM launched its first social impact strategy. Deutsche AM was the first major financial institution to offer sustainable investing in 1997 aimed at generating viable returns with real and measurable social and environmental outcomes from its investments.
Insurance ERM, the sister publication to Insurance Asset Risk, named Deutsche AM “Asset Manager of the Year” earlier this year.
Winners of the Insurance Asset Risk awards were selected from the shortlisted entries by a judging panel vote. The shortlist was culled from submitted entries by a group of category judges. All judges are senior industry experts from across Europe and the UK, each chosen for their knowledge, objectivity and credibility.
