We all want long-term financial performance and the positive sustainability and social outcomes associated with this. However, too often capital markets fail to deliver these. What, if anything, can asset owners and investment consultants do to correct this? What kind of regulatory change is needed?

A roundtable for asset managers, asset owners and investment consultants addressing this question was held on 14 April and was addressed by Professor John Kay and Saker Nusseibeh, CEO of Hermes Investment Management. This proposal for next step actions is based on that roundtable and a series of preparatory interviews conducted ahead of the event.
