NEI Investments Releases Responsible Investment Policy

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - July 04, 2017) - Today, NEI Investments (NEI) announced the release of its Responsible Investment Policy (the "Policy"). The Policy has been released in response to overwhelming interest in the growing field for responsible investing.

"Financial advisors, investment consultants, charitable foundations and university endowments are expressing stronger and stronger interest in the various tools and strategies that NEI can offer," said Robert Walker, Head of Responsible Investing at NEI. "We are committed to helping people understand what responsible investing can do to provide for their future and how it can help generate solutions to the myriad environmental and social challenges we face as a country."

The Policy sets out the investment philosophy that guides NEI's efforts and describes its Responsible Investing Program in detail -- the strategies, procedures and lines of accountability that are designed to help NEI keep its promises to investors.

"NEI has been leading the development of responsible investing in Canada for more than 30 years. Releasing this Policy gives us an opportunity to state in one document how we believe responsible investing can help build sustainable value for investors, for other company stakeholders and, ultimately, society as a whole," said Robert Walker.
