We reflect what matters most to you.
Whether you're driven by personal or stakeholder values, you aim to mitigate risk or simply need to comply with regulation, our approach to responsible investment integrates with what matters most.
OUR APPROACH TO RESPONSIBLE INVESTING
Our responsible investing in practice beliefs
As a global investment solutions provider, we believe that transparency and investing responsibly can help deliver attractive investment returns and meet client objectives in the long-term.
To reflect this, we have founded our responsible investing practice on a set of four beliefs.
A deep understanding
A deep understanding of how ESG factors impact security prices is value-adding to a skilful investment process.
Embedding ESG considerations into a firm's culture and processes improves the likelihood of prolonged and successful investing.
Our climate change investment beliefs
Future climate events and shocks will affect
Current security prices may not reflect current climate change risks and opportunities.
The ability to recognise systematic or idiosyncratic mispricing presents skilful asset managers an opportunity to add investment value through both risk management and return opportunity capture.
Active ownership may be used to mitigate climate-change related risks, or to help foster effective adaptation for individual securities and markets.
OUR COMMITMENT TO INVESTING RESPONSIBLY
We collaborate with organisations that establish and drive responsible investment practices.
