Bullion Management Group Inc. (BMG) Accepted as Signatory to United Nations-Endorsed ‘6 Principles for Responsible Investment’
BMG signs historic document and raises bar in precious metals industry
Markham, ON, June 14, 2016 – Bullion Management Group Inc. (BMG), a Canadian-based global leader in the precious metals industry, is proud to announce its acceptance by PRI, a global leader in responsible investing endorsed by two separate United Nations initiatives (UNEP Finance Initiative and UN Global Compact). BMG’s CEO and president, Nick Barisheff, is committing the company to uphold the PRI’s ‘6 Principles of Responsible Investment.’
This reinforces BMG’s already active initiatives in the area of responsible investing, as it is a proud supporter and Associate Member of Canada’s preeminent Responsible Investment Association (RIA). BMG is also an Associate Member of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), an international trade association, which represents the London market for gold and silver bullion. BMG is actively engaged in the LBMA’s ‘Responsible Gold Guidance’ program, which was developed in an effort to avoid contributing to conflict, human rights abuses, terrorist financing practices, and in order to comply with high standards of anti-money laundering.
“BMG is uncompromised in its investment approach. Since 2002, BMG has always provided the greatest social benefits possible with the lowest social costs, ensuring the purest precious metals solution for investors seeking transparency, no leverage and the highest level of integrity,” said Nick Barisheff.
About the Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI)
The PRI is the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment.
It works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in integrating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions. The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole.
The PRI is truly independent. It encourages investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks, but does not operate for its own profit; it engages with global policy makers but is not associated with any government; it is supported by, but not part of, the United Nations.
