June 22, 2021

In this episode we welcome Clare Payn, Senior Global ESG and Diversity Manager at LGIM, to discuss investor priorities and the role that institutional investors play in driving enhancements in corporate reporting more broadly.

Clare provides her insights into the key ESG themes that investors have been focusing on in the current AGM season including climate risk, TCFD reporting and Paris-aligned targets. Clare also discusses strengthened investor policies on gender inclusion and ethnic diversity, the board-level inclusion and diversity targets set by the Hampton-Alexander and Parker Reviews, and the voting policies that LGIM – one of the largest UK institutional investors – has introduced in response. Listen to this episode to gain clarity on what investors are requesting from companies, as well as the role of the auditor.
