Actively designing solutions for the future.

Responsible investing and ESG

We bring a carefully considered and robust responsible investing approach aligned to your needs


We believe responsible investing is intelligent investing. As a result, we have embedded responsible investment practices and ESG beliefs into our firm-wide practices and processes, including portfolio management. In addition, our responsible investing and ESG experts are integrated throughout business units, spanning functions and regions.


Our investment approach goes beyond standard exclusions to identify asset characteristics that are most relevant to individual investment and the overall portfolio. The focus is on exposures that are sustainable as well as material to your organisation's investment goals. This allows clients to both remove unwanted characteristics and proactively support organisations' positive contribution to research, innovation and leading best practices.


As the focus of sustainability best practice shifts over time, we stay committed to adapting our funds to suit the changing global landscape. You can be sure your capital remains invested in the latest sustainability strategies, without continually changing funds.
