This handbook seeks to catalyse growth in responsible investment across asset classes. It is meant to help investors incorporate responsible methods into their investment mandate; identify and evaluate opportunities for responsible investment, and coordinate the vocabulary and metrics used to measure ESG impacts.  Each chapter focuses on a single asset class and includes information on how to design a responsible investment strategy; identify opportunities for market-rate responsible investments and incorporate engagement strategies into the asset class investment strategy.
