The Pensions Management Institute (PMI) has partnered with Aberdeen Standard Investments as its environmental, social and governance (ESG) insight partner.
Aberdeen Standard Investments was previously PMI's insight partner for diversified investment opportunities.
The institute said the partnership will allow its members to access Aberdeen Standard Investments' in depth knowledge on ESG through its multiple distribution channels, including its monthly magazine Pensions Aspects, email newsletters, PMI TV and website.
PMI chief executive Gareth Tancred said: "The topic of ESG is only set to move further up the pensions agenda, and will be a key feature of pension scheme management in the future.
"As an expert on ESG investing, Aberdeen Standard Investments provide a natural fit for our insight partner on this topic, and we look forward to working with them to help drive ESG thought leadership in the pensions arena."
The institute's insight partnerships are developed with organisations considered industry experts and thought leaders, to develop and support innovation on pertinent and topical issues affecting pensions, and to add value by delivering insight to its membership.
Earlier this year, PMI announced four new partnerships including JP Morgan, Squire Patton Boggs, P-Solve and Legal & General
