Are we doing enough to secure a sustainable future?
Seven key takeaways from the discussion between Former Bank of England and Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney and Hendrik du Toit, CEO of Ninety One.
There is growing recognition that, collectively, asset owners and managers have a responsibility to redirect the flow of capital towards sustainable investments with the potential for positive impact.
We have dedicated significant time to developing our philosophy and approach to investing sustainably and for positive impact within a multi-asset framework.
As asset owners and managers, we have the responsibility and the ability to exert influence and contribute to positive environmental and societal change.
It has often been claimed that a limitation of sustainable multi-asset investing is the challenge of assessing all asset classes through a sustainability lens. In our view, this is simply not the case today.
We believe countries and companies who take sustainability seriously will thrive; those that don't will suffer. Over the coming months, we will continue evolving our processes to evaluate the environmental and social externalities of companies and countries through our sustainability criteria.
We are delighted to share our comprehensive ESG review paper for the Ninety One Diversified Growth Strategy, where we set out our philosophy on ESG integration and provide metrics, analysis and commentary on a range of ESG factors for the strategy, including:
The value of investments, and any income generated from them, can fall as well as rise. Where charges are taken from capital, this may constrain future growth. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. If any currency differs from the investor’s home currency, returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. Investment objectives and performance targets are subject to change and may not necessarily be achieved, losses may be made.
