Asset Owners Network

A4S's Asset Owners Network brings together just under forty Chairs of pension funds, their pooling partners, investment committees and endowments to explore the relevance of material social and environmental risks and opportunities with peers. Meeting three to four times a year, the Network provides an informal and confidential setting to share insights on approaches that the pension fund community can take in helping to deliver a sustainable financial system capable of supporting achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Paris Agreement.

Many members of the Network have signed a TCFD statement of Support signalling their commitment to support and adopt the TCFD recommendations.

Members include Chairs of corporate pension funds, public funds, from both DB and DC schemes, and have combined pension assets of over US$450 billion.

The Network is co-chaired by Emma Howard Boyd, Chair of the investment committee, Environment Agency Pension Fund, and Russell Picot, Chair, HSBC Bank (UK) Pension Trust.
