The Shareholder Commons and Beyond Alpha convened 17 investment organizations with a combined $1.3tn in AUM to discuss the practical implications of adopting system-level thinking in their investment and stewardship practices

The report summarizes key findings from those discussion based on three framing questions:

    • What would the financial markets look like if system-level thinking became the dominant paradigm?
    • What are the challenges and obstacles that prevent the industry from achieving this new state?
    • How can we overcome the obstacles to effective stewardship of our shared systems?
