  • ESG engagement

    Actively engaging with companies to improve environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards is integral to our equity process and ethos. By encouraging positive change, we aim to improve outcomes both for investors and the wider world.

  • Diverse outcomes

    We carry out our own thorough, team-based research to help us find good quality opportunities. Our aim is to meet the needs of investors. Whatever their priorities – from income and growth to sustainable investing - our experience and global equity resource allow us to target a wide range of outcomes.

Our ESG approach to equity investing

We believe that ESG factors are financially material and can impact a company’s performance – either positively or negatively. Understanding ESG risks and opportunities, alongside other financial metrics, is therefore an intrinsic part of our research process.

We actively engage with the companies in which we invest. We combine information from these meetings with the insights of our investment managers, ESG equity analysts and central ESG investment team. This comprehensive approach means we can build a richer, more holistic view of each company. It also means we can consistently evaluate one company against another.

This approach is all part of our responsible stewardship of our clients’ assets – helping us mitigate risks, unlock opportunities and enhance long-term returns.
