The world's largest investors, sovereign wealth funds and government pension funds, understand the role of responsible investing in generating sustainable, long-term returns. The 25 Most Responsible Asset Allocators List is developed after analyzing 195 funds responsible for managing $21 trillion in assets. These funds are among the worlds most powerful financial players. The top 25 Leaders manage assets greater than the combined GDP of 145 countries. When they decide something is important we all should take note.

"Increasingly, the asset allocator community is recognizing that investing responsibly and sustainably is a better way to optimize returns, reduce risks, and identify opportunities for future growth, all while aligning portfolios with broader social and environmental concerns of stakeholders.”

- Scott Kalb, Founder and Director of the RAAI at New America and Chairman of the Sovereign Investor Institute at Institutional Investor
