Our commitment to sustainable investment
We believe that by investing in companies which operate with high standards of corporate responsibility we can protect and enhance investment returns for our clients.
Through our rigorous bottom-up research process we gain an in-depth understanding of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues at a company level before they escalate and potentially threaten the value of our clients’ investments.
ESG is part of our investment process
There are four important inputs into how we analyse ESG for each company that we research - our analysts, our specialist ESG team, external research and our portfolio managers who actively consider ESG in their investment decisions.
The UK Stewardship Code
We are proud to be a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code, which sets high stewardship standards for UK asset owners, asset managers and service providers.Read our statement
