Is responsible investment the same as developmental investment


RI is still sometimes confused with developmental investment in national priorities such as infrastructure, social housing and job creation.  

Responsible investment strategies might lead investors to focus on sectors that benefit society and the economy. However, it is not based on an expectation of fulfilling national economic development priorities, whether voluntary or mandatory, such as through prescribed assets. 

Responsible investment and Developmental Investment strategies can nevertheless be complementary.
