In the face of the recent financial crisis there is increased focus on long-term investment strategies. This is particularly true for institutional investors who manage our retirement savings. Simultaneously there is increased demand that financial assets be invested with an understanding of long-term environmental and social sustainability. Responsible investing provides a long-term sustainable investment strategy that values environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors in investment decision-making. Responsible Investing has always had a broad mandate. Put simply, it is a long-term sustainable investment strategy that seeks to reduce risk in investment portfolios through managing ESG issues in today's corporations.Ã¿ Ã¿The Next Generation of Responsible Investment explores this topic in an edited volume intended for those with an interest in finance and business.
You are fired at from all angles about how important it is save and invest for the future, then you hear about tax-free ISAs and how they are a government backed unmissable tax-free opportunity to invest. So the next step is to visit your bank or call a financial advisor, isn't it? Sadly not. In the Isa jungle you'll encounter financial advisors with salesman tactics or some new mis-selling scandal and even your bank manager is out hunting to get the biggest cut of your savings he possibly can for the bank and his own promotion prospects. None of this is compatible with your own investment objectives and the only solution is to empower yourself to make your own investing decisions, which is where this book can help you.
This book investigates how a North African solar thermal power plant can be set up under the guidance of European investors (e.g. the Desertec Concept) as a Public Private Partnership (PPP). It outlines the importance of early awareness of contract-related risks, investment risks and dispute settlement, arguing that commercial and investment arbitration are the best tools for settling disputes regarding a large-scale solar thermal project. Furthermore, by comparing institutional and ad hoc arbitration, it shows that the former offers highly suitable support. The latest developments in the area of investment arbitration under EU law and the general acceptance of arbitration in Islamic countries are examined in particular. This book also demonstrates that a solar thermal power plant must meet certain requirements to be considered an investment. These requirements are examined in relation to Art. 25 of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes Convention (ICSID Convention) and respective case law. Overall, the book offers valuable guidelines for investors and host states on how to successfully implement large-scale solar thermal projects.
