How to Invest Responsibly

It’s easier than ever to invest in a way that has the potential to make a difference and provide a financial return. Sustainability considerations are integrated into our investment process, through taking account of ESG factors and are integral to everything we do.

Our sustainable solutions build on ESG integration to provide a range of investment capabilities designed to meet clients’ financial goals and objectives whilst allowing them to invest in a way that aligns with their values and sustainability views.

Values

Values investors want their portfolios to accurately reflect their personal ethics or sustainability values. They are often keen to avoid and/or select certain industries or companies based on their beliefs.

With our ‘values’ solutions, we invest according to the ethical or sustainability issues that investors care about – for instance, climate change and environmental protection. Values-focused funds will include or avoid companies and industries based on those values.
