Kilter was pleased to see the results of the recent benchmark survey conducted by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA) confirmed the increasing importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy in the decision making of the wealth management sector. 

Responsible management market now accounts for 37% of the $3.1trillion of assets under management by professional investment managers and that agriculture accounts for 13% of sustainably themed investments. 

Agriculture has at times been overlooked as a dynamic new sector however scientific and technological advances have now put agriculture it at the forefront of discussions on climate change. Kilter strongly believes that regenerative agriculture can simultaneously deliver strong financial returns and improved environmental outcomes.  Changing attitudes and increased investment in this form of agriculture can have a profound impact on the future of food production and climate change.

Kilter supports RIAA in the pursuit of increased awareness of the importance of ESG to consumers and the investment industry.
