UFG Asset Management scores A+ on UN PRI assessment

UFG Asset Management, a long-standing PRI signatory, submits annually an individual report assessed by UN PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment).

In July 2019, UN PRI published the results of 2019 assessment where UFG Asset Management was awarded ‘A+’, the highest rating score, for strategy, governance and private equity.

The excellent result is an additional recognition of our commitment to responsible investment and ESG principles and the expertise that we have built up across our investment process and portfolio.

UFG Asset Management successfully outperformed its peer group across all the divisions and scored consistently higher than the median industry average across all modules.

About UN PRI

The United Nations-supported PRI initiative is an international network of over 2,300 signatories working together to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice.

Its goals are to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance issues and to support signatories in integrating these issues into investment and ownership decisions. The Assessment Report is designed to provide feedback to the signatories to support them in their ongoing learning and development in this regard.
