Lauren Peacock
Responsible Investment Manager
DescriptionScottish Widows has been helping people plan for their financial futures for over 200 years. We look after the retirement savings of millions of hard-working people and our role is to help them plan for their long-term financial prosperity. To do this, it's important we continue to use our scale and influence, along with our fund manager relationships, to challenge the companies we invest in on our customers' behalf to be the sustainable businesses of the future.ApproachAs environmental, social and governance factors become better researched and understood, we believe it’s clear they can have a financial impact on investments. Our customers look to us to exercise our judgement on the most appropriate ways of investing over the long term. So we aim to address material financial risks and opportunities linked to ESG factors in the investments we make, and this is the foundation of our responsible investment approach.
