Welcome to our Responsible Investment and Stewardship Highlights of 2022/23!

Last year's Stewardship Highlights Report 2022 (PDF) [5MB] (opens new window)   explained several different aspects of this broad area. This year's report builds on this to share examples of the work we do in action.

Alongside the Highlights Report we also publish a much more detailed and comprehensive  Stewardship Report 2023 (PDF) [4MB] (opens new window)   on our activities in this area. The below shorter report is designed to share some highlights, to make the information more accessible to a wider audience.

We hope you enjoy the report!

What is Responsible Investment?

Responsible investment is the strategy to incorporate ESG (environmental, social and governance) factors into investment decisions.

What is Stewardship?

It is the responsible allocation, management and oversight of capital to create long-term value for clients and beneficiaries leading to sustainable benefits for the economy, the environment and society (as defined by the Stewardship Code 2020).

What is Wiltshire Pension Fund trying to do?

ESG factors, including Climate Change, are important factors for the sustainability of investment returns over the long term. We need to protect the Fund's assets, so that we have enough money to pay pension benefits as they fall due, and to help keep our employers' contribution rates as stable and affordable as possible. That's why we consider these factors - we are always trying to earn strong risk-adjusted returns,
and ESG factors play an important role in helping us to do that.
