A commitment to sustainability

We believe sustainability drives financial value in today's markets and that ESG analysis is vital to understanding the true worth of our investments. That's why we put responsible investing at the heart of our business and culture, both as an asset manager and as a steward of our clients' capital.

Integration 

In all asset classes, we’re committed to continuing to integrate ESG analysis alongside our fundamental research process, and we seek to create a positive impact by engaging with investee companies to mitigate ESG-related challenges and enhance ESG-related opportunities. We believe that identifying and assessing material sustainability issues help us protect and enhance the value of the assets we own or operate.

Stewardship

To us, being a good steward in the financial markets means focusing on the long term, prioritizing the sustainability of our investments and operations, and expanding the view of what matters beyond financial value.

 

 

Collaboration

We help steer industry-changing sustainability initiatives across the global capital markets. Through collaborating with industry peers, we amplify our impact by working with other investors to address ESG concerns among the companies, industries, and markets in our collective orbit of influence.
