The Standards Board for Alternative Investments (SBAI) has this morning announced the launch of its first toolkits targeted at asset managers and allocators to help them with the practical implementation of responsible investment across certain alternative investment strategies and asset classes.

The SBAI has been ramping up its focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) alongside responsible investing and these guides are the latest step to try and bring some standardisation around adoption of these practices and to help allocators understand what’s required, from themselves, funds and managers.

The toolkits, which are the result of the work within the SBAI’s Responsible Investment Working group that is made up of some 150 professionals from over 140 asset managers representing over $1 trillion in AUM, are memos that first cover credit, equity long/short, macro, and systematic asset class strategies.
