According to an article published on November 7, 2013 in Institutional Investor, the New York-based hedge fund and alternative investment firm Mariner Investment Group announced in September 2013 that it would join the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). In addition, Mariner will use ESG data and research from MSCI to inform its investment process across all asset classes.
Mariner partner and CEO Bracebridge Young Jr. explained, “Our portfolio managers will have this additional information, which includes a security-by-security evaluation of ESG. I believe this will give us better risk-adjusted returns.”
