Investing for a better tomorrow
Investing for a better tomorrow

On behalf of our clients we invest sustainably in three ways:

  1. All our investment strategies incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors as we believe that  ESG investing should enhance long-term performance. By incorporating ESG factors, our strategies consider the full spectrum of risks and opportunities associated with an investment.

    Read more on the  Principles for Responsible Investment’s assessment of our ESG processes.
  2. As an active investor, we engage with portfolio companies and governments to encourage them to address sustainability and improve their ESG performance. We believe strongly in the power of engagement to effect positive change.
    Read more about ESG  and how we engage.
  3. We offer dedicated investments  targeting opportunities arising from the world’s transition to a more sustainable model, giving investors the chance to put their capital at the leading edge of the sustainability revolution.
