The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.
The investment and governance landscape is more complex than ever for universities and colleges. Institutions face the challenge of protecting the real value of assets in an environment of lower yields and higher inflation. At the same time, there's a growing focus on creating positive and measurable environmental and social impact through investment, going beyond the traditional exclusion-based approach to responsible investing which is well established in the sector.
Proven focus on sustainability
We believe it's possible for institutions to meet their sustainability objectives in investment without sacrificing a diversified and attractive opportunity set. Through active engagement and stewardship we have built a strong track record of delivering more sustainable outcomes across asset classes in both public and private markets.
