Investments in line with our values
Our investment strategies are managed in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.
Responsible Investing covers a broad investment landscape: from environmental, social and governance (ESG) integration – where ESG factors are included in traditional financial analysis – to Impact Investing, where meeting objectives with social benefits is prioritised ahead of financial returns. The strategies are managed in accordance with sustainable development principles. Most of the assets will be invested in securities whose issuers can be deemed to comply with ESG criteria.
The goal of integrating these principles into the investment process is to:
- earn superior long-term risk-adjusted performance;
- influence the actions of management teams through dialogue and/or by exercising voting rights;
- bring about positive social and environmental change.
Investments are screened for each company’s conduct or products and services considered controversial.
Top companies are selected within each sector based on ESG criteria.
Precedence is given to themes making the most of social and environmental opportunities.
This approach seeks out companies that, in addition to being profitable, have a positive environmental and social impacts.
This involves private initiatives, for the public good, focusing on social or environmental outcomes without financial returns.
