The final results of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) Assessment 2021 – covering financial year 2020 – have been published! Asper scored 93 out of 100 points (five stars) in the Infrastructure module, and 90 out of 100 points (four stars) in the Investment & Stewardship module. The module scores have changed from alphabetical grading (from A+ to E) in 2020 to a new numerical grading system ranging (from 1 to 5 stars) in 2021 to create more dispersion. PRI also recalibrated the questions to gain deeper insights, for example in assessing how firms are dealing with climate change risks and opportunities in their investment decisions.

Asper is proud of the high scores on the PRI Assessment as they highlight our strong expertise in responsible investment and infrastructure which supports the goals of our clients. We aim to keep investing in reporting and benchmarking, to increase our own standards and help raise those of the industry. Asper’s latest Public Transparency Report has been published on our website here.
