Regnan is a responsible investment leader with a long and proud heritage providing advice and insights on important environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.
We were established in 1996 to investigate and address ESG-related related sources of risk and value for long-term shareholders in Australian companies.
Building on that expertise, in 2020 Regnan expanded its capabilities into responsible investment funds management, backed by the considerable resources of Pendal Group.
Regnan is part of Pendal Group (ASX:PDL), an Australian investment manager and owner of J O Hambro Capital Management. We have offices in Sydney, Melbourne and London.
While continuing to provide engagement, advisory and research services, Regnan now also delivers innovative sustainable and impact investment solutions.
The new Regnan Global Equity Impact Solutions Fund invests in mission-driven companies we believe are well placed to solve the world’s biggest problems.
The fund is distributed in the UK by J O Hambro and is expected to be available in Europe and elsewhere soon. In Australia the fund is distributed by Pendal.
In Australia we have launched the Regnan Credit Impact Trust, distributed via Pendal. This strategy — only available in Australia — invests in cash, fixed and floating rate securities where the proceeds create positive environmental and social change.
Regnan is a global leader in long-term value, systemic risk analysis and responsible investment advisory.
Our in-house team of experienced analysts produces rigorous, relevant ESG investment analysis.
We tailor solutions to meet the specific needs of our clients who include asset owners, fund managers, wealth managers, endowments, retail and investment banks.
Clients use our services for a range of purposes from stock selection, portfolio construction and stewardship, through to all aspects of responsible investment framework development and implementation.
We engage directly with leading listed companies, on behalf of institutional investor clients, to drive improved ESG governance and long term thinking needed for stocks to yield higher quality returns.
Regnan also advocates for ESG considerations to become mainstream through contribution to the public policy debate, board and committee-level participation in industry bodies, and submissions to government.
Our new look
Reflecting our expanded mission, in 2020 Regnan introduced a new look and website
The new Regnan logo — seen at the top of this website — evokes shifting tectonic plates, signifying the permanent change that sustainability brings to the investment landscape.
The logo also emphasises the “Re” in Regnan — a prefix seen in words such as re-make, re-imagine, re-vamp — and responsible investing.
The name Regnan itself — taken from the world’s tallest flowering plant (Eucalyptus Regnans) — remains a lasting symbol of leadership, focus and determination to look far into the future on behalf of our clients.
The world is rapidly progressing to a notion of shared responsibility as a prerequisite for a sustainable financial ecosystem. This collective call-to-action is driving unprecedented collaborations between public and private entities, between corporations and capital providers and between businesses and consumers. We view effective management of the impact our actions and decisions can have on society and the environment as fundamental to our continued ability to deliver sustainable value to our clients, employees and our shareholders. As a fiduciary and a corporate citizen we have both a duty and an interest in managing this influence.
