EQ Investors (EQ) has been awarded the highest possible rating from the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), with a five-star rating across every category in which it reported.
The United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment are the world’s largest global reporting project for responsible investors, against which EQ can showcase its sustainable investment and stewardship processes.
These scores put EQ above its asset management peers, and well above the investment industry median. The assessment of the 2023 PRI report is based on 2022 reporting.

“This rating demonstrates our industry leading approach to creating long-term value for clients, through the management of portfolios with strong, clear social and environmental outcomes, without compromising financial returns.
“Reporting to the PRI helps to ensure accountability, promote standardisation, and encourage learning and development. While we celebrate these achievements, we remain dedicated to continuous improvement.”
