A New Chapter for FSI with Finance Montréal

As many of you will know, on May 29th, our members voted at a Special Assembly to accept a Board resolution proposing the integration of FSI’s activities into those of Finance Montréal under a special agreement (available in French only).

“Since FSI was created in 2010, a great many dedicated volunteers made it their mission to facilitate the evolution of financial institutions’ ‘traditional’ investment practices to integrate more broadly environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, with a view to sustainable development. Eight years later, in the current global context, our mission is all the more relevant,” said Milla Craig, President of the Board at FSI. “With Finance Montréal, we are confident that the financial community will have all the resources it needs to streamline the integration of ESG criteria into investment analysis, selection and management, to make Montréal Canada’s leading sustainable finance accelerator and hub,” added Craig.

“FSI has played an important role in successfully transforming responsible investment from a peripheral consideration to a core factor in the investment sector,” said Louis Lévesque, Chief Executive Officer of Finance Montréal. “We are excited about taking the baton from FSI and working toward its vision of a world where investment decisions are always made with responsible investment in mind in order to promote sustainable development,” concluded Lévesque.
