In this presentation, Rakhi Kumar will answer the following questions: As permanent capital owners, do large index managers have a responsibility to turn passive investing into active ownership by engaging directly with companies in the index on long-term strategic objectives, including environmental, social, and governance issues? How can large index managers help bridge the agency gap that comes with investing in an index by becoming long-term asset stewards on behalf of index investors? How might doing so affect the overall quality of the indexes and the broader economy? From a practical perspective, how can long-horizon asset owners and managers work with companies to create sustainable value creation?
