With decades of investment experience and more than 1,200 professionals behind us, we focus on generating the best possible risk-adjusted returns that align with our clients’ objectives. As a signatory to the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investment since 2007, we’re committed to incorporating ESG factors into our investment practices.
Our firm-wide commitment to sustainable investing, which has always been an implicit facet of our engagement and investment processes, was formalised with the establishment of a Sustainable Investment Leadership Team whose mandate is to implement a coordinated strategy for sustainable investing. This cross-functional team comprises senior leaders with a deep and diverse set of expertise across asset class and client channels with a goal to systematically integrate ESG factors into process where material, relevant and consistent with fiduciary duties, across investment engines. The team focuses on:
Sharing our view on sustainable investing and helping our clients better understand our capabilities across asset classes and investment strategies
Improving awareness and encouraging broader adoption through information, education and partnerships
Promoting internal best practices, including identification and assessment of ESG issues across asset classes and investment solutions
Deepening and broadening our current investment capabilities including portfolio analytics, measurement and reporting
Our Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) strategy is underpinned by a research-driven approach
