Global asset manager, Eaton Vance, has announced that its Australian business has joined the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA), a body representing responsible, ethical and impact investors across Australia and New Zealand.

Eaton Vance Management Limited (EVMI) managing director and head of sales and distribution outside of the US, TJ Halbertsma, said the company would continue to strengthen its responsible investing capabilities led by its affiliate, Calvert Research and Management.

“ESG is an important part of our research and investment process and can be applied across the spectrum of investment strategies,” he said.

“Calvert, a global leader in responsible investing, seeks to earn competitive investment returns while influencing progress and creating a positive impact on society through integrated ESG research with an emphasis on company engagement and measurement of non-financial, material factors.”

The RIAA aims to encourage more capital to be invested into sustainable assets and enterprises to help shape responsible financial markets which would, in return, deliver a healthier economy, society and environment.

“We believe that the RIAA plays an important role in promoting best practices in responsible investing and we look forward to contributing our insights and reports to enhance investor education and increase interest in this sector,” Halbertsma said.
