The PRI Networks are geographic groups of signatories working together on responsible investment in their region.
In 2015 the PRI opened offices outside of the UK for the first time, establishing a presence in the Americas and in Asia via new offices in New York and Hong Kong.
We opened our first office outside the UK in New York. A full-time presence in this crucial market means better support for the efforts of our US signatories (who comprise nearly a fifth of our total signatory base) and building our influence by adding new signatories in the home of the world’s largest economy and financial markets.
We opened a Hong Kong office and joined forces with the leading responsible investment association in the region, The Association for Sustainable and Responsible Investment in Asia which is now part of the PRI. In Asia, sustainable assets under management account for less than 1% - there is huge scope for growth.
As well as its three permanent offices in London, New York and Hong Kong, the PRI has Network Managers serving signatory Networks across the world. New senior positions have been created include an Associate Director, EMEA to coordinate our extensive operations across Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Head of Asia (excl. Japan) to run our new Asian operations following the ASrIA integration.
