The recently launched Kigoda RI Ranking 2017 uses CRISA’s (Code for Responsible Investing in South Africa) five principles and its practice recommendations to independently assess whether 10 of the largest asset managers in South Africa have the policy frameworks and governance structures in place to implement sustainable and responsible investment, and to adequately disclose information on their responsible investment performance.

The Kigoda RI Ranking 2017 results, coupled with our National Business Awards 2016 Sustainability Award, demonstrate our distinction in implementing RI practices in our business and our position as an industry leader in this space.
