The Emerging Markets Investors Alliance (“The Alliance”) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that enables institutional emerging market investors to support good governance, promote sustainable development, and improve investment performance in the governments and companies in which they invest. The Alliance seeks to raise awareness and advocate for these issues through collaboration among investors, companies or governments, and public policy experts.
| Our primary activities are:
〉 educating investors about ESG issues and
〉 advocating for best practice. We do this by having monthly working group calls, ad-hoc events, issue-specific roundtables and semi-annual conferences as well as publish research.
