A recent important result was the South African Treasury accepting and integrating into Regulation 28 of the Pension Funds Act, a recommendation from the work group that trustees of Pension Funds should consider material ESG issues for all asset classes. It has been a pleasure to work with Graham.” - Senior Investment Analyst, active ownership ESG asset management firm and colleague, ASISA, Cape Town, South Africa.
