Katherine Ng is Head of Academic Research at UN’s Principles for
Responsible Investment (PRI). Here, she supports and develops research
that enables their signatories in their day-to-day decision making, as well
as thought leadership and future-thinking.
The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) is an investor initiative in
partnership with UNEP FI and the UN Global Compact. Founded in 2006
and supported by the United Nations, the PRI has become the leading
network for investors demonstrating their commitment to responsible
ownership and long-term, sustainable returns. Pension funds, insurance
companies, sovereign/development funds, investment managers and
service providers make up the PRI network. Their goal is to grow investor
interest in environmental, social and corporate governance issues (ESG),
share best practice and support signatory needs in their fulfilment of the
six PRI Principles.
