The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)

Alpha Real Capital, the parent company of TIME, is a signatory of the PRI.

The PRI is an internationally recognised global network of asset managers, owners and service providers working together to put responsible investment into practice. The principles, which are voluntary and aspirational, aim to provide a framework for integrating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations into investment decision-making and ownership practices.

The six principles are:

  • Principle 1: We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
  • Principle 2: We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
  • Principle 3: We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
  • Principle 4: We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.
  • Principle 5: We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
  • Principle 6: We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.
