Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) calls for evidence and information regarding favourable relationships between companies and investors in a project. The consultation is available at http://www.meti.go.jp/english/press/2013/1016_02.html. The METI's project has also developed a short paper explaining the public consultation, which is posted at http://www.meti.go.jp/press/2013/10/20131016001/20131016001-3.pdf.
A recent, thoughtful letter from SFM Participant Keith Ambachtsheer is just below, and touches on the essential subject of Incentives and Compensation in regards to time horizons and investment decisions.
RICPM’s recent workshop with Generation, as the letter describes, highlighted two related action steps in this regard
1. Design and implement concentrated long horizon investment mandates
2. Develop a ‘Model Investment Mandate’
There’s also sections on Integrated Reporting and Investment Income Monitoring techniques.
From specific supporting individuals of the Network for Sustainable Financial Markets – hearty thanks to Cary Krosinsky, Keith L. Johnson, Mark Van Clieaf, and Alan Willis for spearheading this effort and to all of you who contributed your thoughts & considerations.
