ESG

Intrinsic to Creating Value

We strongly believe that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors positively contribute to better investment outcomes, as well as contributing to help build a more stable, sustainable and inclusive global economy. By incorporating ESG criteria into our investment decision making and investment practices we can influence the companies we invest in to create long-term sustainable value.

Becoming a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment allows us to demonstrate our formal commitment to upholding the PRI principles for our investments. As a firm with a global footprint, our internal policies and procedures must consider the impact of our investment decisions on the wider community at a time when financial services firms need to align with the broader objectives of the society. In the long run, we firmly believe that responsible investing is the only sustainable way of generating superior returns, while improving our companies’ impact on society and the environment.
