Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Perennial Better Future Trust has been re-certified as a Responsible Investment product by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia (RIAA). RIAA’s rigorous Responsible Investment Certification Program is the leading initiative for distinguishing quality responsible, ethical and impact investment products and services in Australia and New Zealand, and the longest running responsible investment program in the world. The Perennial Better Future Trust first achieved the certification in 2020.

RIAA’s Certification Symbol is recognised by investors and consumers across the region, providing confidence that a product or provider is delivering on its responsible investment promise and meeting the Australian and New Zealand Standard for responsible investing.

As part of this process, RIAA assessed the Perennial Better Future Trust’s investment process, ESG integration, disclosure of holdings and stewardship practices. RIAA also assessed Perennial’s commitment to responsible investment as a firm. In 2022, Perennial was recognised as a Responsible Investment Leader by RIAA for the third consecutive year and ranked among the top 10 fund managers and superannuation firms.

We are proud to be able to display the RIAA Certification Symbol as recognition of our leading responsible investment product and authentic approach to ESG investing.

The Perennial Better Future Trust has been certified by the Responsible Investment Association Australasia according to the strict operational and disclosure practices required under the Responsible Investment Certification Program.1
