Mariner Investment Group, LLC became a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in August 2013. As a Firm, we realize the importance of socially conscious investing to our investors, as well as our stakeholders. We believe the only effective way to incorporate such beliefs is to integrate them into our investment process whenever practicable.
Our approach is one of inclusion. We believe Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) information and related risks can be additive to our investment process. Our implementation and integration does not replace fundamental or technical analysis. Rather, ESG analysis may be performed in conjunction with traditional evaluation, as we believe ESG risks should be considered in the decision making process.
The United Nations-supported PRI initiative is an international network of investors working together in an effort to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice. PRI signatories endeavor to:
Be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices
Seek appropriate disclosures on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest
Promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry
Work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles
Report our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles
Incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making process
