    Launch of ICGN Japan Governance Priorities Update Report

    In 2019, ICGN published a Statement of Japan Governance Priorities including recommendations around the securities report, capital efficiency, executive pay and board quality. This year, ICGN will publish a Japan Governance Priorities Update Report to provide global investor opinion on progress and clarify areas for improvement. We will discuss whether reform efforts, such as the introduction of the JPX Prime Market and recently updated Japan Corporate Governance Code, are having a positive impact on sustainable corporate value and how to overcome impediments to constructive shareholder and company engagement.

    Launch of ICGN-GISD Alliance Model Mandate

    The Model Mandate was first published by ICGN in 2012 and has been updated in partnership with the UN supported Global Investors for Sustainable Development Alliance. The Mandate offers guidance on how to incorporate the UN Sustainable Development Goals into investor stewardship activities.  It provides asset owners with example contractual terms to consider when agreeing mandates with asset managers in their efforts to preserve and enhance long-term value. Our panel of global asset owners and managers will consider what is sustainable development investing? What should be considered before negotiating contracts? How are sustainability objectives incorporated in investment policies, portfolio design and fee structures. What are the challenges and opportunities for successful implementation?
